Free Covid-19 Vaccines at Downtown Library

Christina Sacco, Public Relations Coordinator – July, 2021

The Chattanooga Public Library will start offering free, walk-in vaccines at its Downtown Library starting Monday, July 19. 

In June, the City of Chattanooga partnered with Lifespring Community Health to administer free vaccines at its community centers. According to Dr. Mary Lambert, the City’s Director of Community Health, this initiative aims to bring to a familiar place that is comfortable and convenient for residents. With the Library acting as another community vaccine site, Dr. Lambert hopes to reach downtown residents and individuals experiencing homelessness. 

“We are thrilled to take part in the City’s vaccine initiative,” said Library Executive Director Corinne Hill. “Our Library strives to provide the public with whatever they need, whether that’s a book, a tool, or a vaccine. And, this isn’t our first time assisting with public health. In 2019, when the state was seeing an increase in Hepatitis A cases, we teamed up with the Hamilton County Health Department to offer vaccines then.”
