November 2, Vaccine Town Hall

[[{"fid":"3146","view_mode":"default","type":"media","attributes":{"height":1508,"width":1136,"style":"width: 150px; height: 200px;","class":"media-element file-default"}}]]A few days ago I wrote a post about vaccines. At the very end was an announcement about the VACCINE TOWN HALL we are hosting on November 2 at 6:30 at the medical school (VTC). I wanted to be certain you had seen the post, and would love for you to come to the event, bring your questions and concerns about vaccines and bring (or tell) your relatives, friends, co-workers, children, parents, patients, teachers, students--even folks you meet on the street.

There is no cost to attend, and you will have a chance to meet other members of the community, as well as to ask pertinent questions of the presenters--myself, Dr. Colleen Kraft, and Dr. Amy Kryder.

You can send questions in advance by writing comments here, or tweeting them using the hashtag #vaxTH.

You can sign up to come by calling 5540-266-6000 or 800-422-8482, or by accessing the Carilion Clinic Facebook page event for the TOWN HALL.

It is not required that you register in advance, but it sure would help us to know how many folks we are expecting.
