Many patients are justifiably concerned about their risk of developing measles as the news story has come out of someone traveling through our area exposing hundreds of people to this contagious virus. We want to help you navigate this time and make sure you are well protected.
The best way to navigate your personal scenario is to schedule an appointment with your physician or mid-level clinician. Everyone is an individual and needs an individual plan.
Some patients will end up needing one or two doses of the vaccine and others might not. Some patients should be tested for immunity with antibody titers and others might not. We can help you decide what’s right for you in this situation, so give us a call at 865-539-0270 to set up your appointment today.
Patients that come in requesting just the lab or just the vaccine, without a prior office consultation, will be asked to schedule with a clinician to decide the best course of action.
We look forward to helping you and your family be protected.
