Cullman Regional hosting Adult Vaccinations Seminar Aug. 16

CULLMAN – Cullman Regional is hosting an Adult Vaccinations Seminar lunch and learn program on Thursday, Aug. 16 from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.

Dr. Kathryn Pettit, director of the Cullman Regional Urgent Care Center, will share adult vaccine information, including which additional vaccines are recommended for people with diabetes, heart disease, liver disease or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Adults’ immune systems naturally weaken with age, increasing the risk of certain infectious diseases. For example, influenza and pneumonia are leading causes of death in the United States. In addition, vaccines for shingles, tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis benefit the adult population.

The Adult Vaccinations Seminar will be held in the Colonel Cullmann Room, located in Professional Office Building 2 on the Cullman Regional Campus (1912 Alabama Highway 157, Cullman, AL 35058).

Cost of this lunch and learn program is $5 for Healthy Life members and $8 for others. To register, visit www.cullmanregional.com or call 256-735-5600.
