CHI Memorial Spreads Immunization Awareness

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) – August is National Immunization Awareness Month, which means it’s time to get vaccinated!

Thousands of Americans are facing serious health problems or death, due to diseases that could have been prevented by a quick doctor’s visit. It may sound overwhelming, but according to physicians with CHI Memorial keeping your vaccinations up-to-date helps protect you and those around you from dangerous yet preventable diseases.

“Having a primary care provider is very important, because it’s our responsibility to notify the adults that these are the vaccines that you need,” said Crystal Lawson, a physician assistant with CHI Memorial.

Those who are planning to travel outside of the country any time soon, should consult a doctor about any additional vaccines. For a list of CHI Memorial primary care providers in your area, click here.
