Chattanooga Family Practice encourages everyone able to obtain a COVID-19 vaccine to do so as soon as you are eligible. To find out if you are eligible for vaccination and where to find the vaccine in Hamilton County, please click here! Or to find a vaccine near you, click here!
We have been encouraged by an impressive drop in COVID-19 cases, but the threat of future resurgences and the inevitable return of restrictions is quite real. The medical community’s experience with the initial rollout of vaccines is encouraging—robust immune responses not only dramatically reducing death and hospitalizations but also reductions in transmissions.
From a safety standpoint, there have been the expected though quite rare severe reactions. However, with a 95% protection rate, AND stronger immunity from the vaccine than what is obtained from COVID infection, the benefit of the shot is much greater than the risks for most.
All Lab Appointments are now on the FIRST floor in our lobby.
Please come at your scheduled appointment time as we are keeping the number of people to a minimum. Wear a mask if you have one or we will provide one for you. We may ask you to wait in your car until you are called if there are too many people present at one time. That is why it is important to come at your scheduled time. Your temperature will be checked upon arrival with a touchless thermometer.
We will continue seeing patients via Telehealth, as well as In-Office appointments. Thank you for your continued patience and patronage.

Chattanooga Family Practice is closely monitoring all developments with COVID-19, and our staff is following the latest guidance from local and state health officials as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The safety of our patients, employees, and physicians remains our highest priority.
In response to the CDC guidelines for Social Distancing, please do not bring anyone with you into the office unless you need assistance.
To help prevent the spread of illness:
Do not go to the emergency room or urgent care unless symptoms are severe, such as high fever, shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing. Emergency rooms need to be able to serve those with the most critical needs. If you have milder symptoms like cough, low-grade fever, or other respiratory problems, contact your regular provider first.
Stay home when sick and call us to schedule a Telehealth appointment.
Practice excellent personal hygiene habits, including handwashing, coughing into tissue or elbow, avoid touching eyes, nose, or mouth.
Stay informed via public health updates as information is changing frequently.
