Lovell Federal Health Care Center to hold next patient tele-town hall Dec. 21

Learn about COVID-19 booster shots, influenza vaccinations and more

NORTH CHICAGO, Ill. - The Captain James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center's next Patient Tele-Town Hall will be at 11 a.m., Dec. 21. All patients and stakeholders of Lovell FHCC are encouraged to join in.

Tele-town halls are an opportunity for patients and caregivers to learn about Lovell FHCC health care and other services and get information about COVID-19 vaccines. Lovell FHCC Director Dr. Robert Buckley and Deputy Director/Commanding Officer Capt. Thomas Nelson will lead the town hall.

The tele-town hall format is like a radio talk show. Participants receive an automated call prior to the start of the town hall asking them to join. Then they may provide their questions to a screener before being placed in the queue to potentially ask their question "live." Participants who aren't called on and/or can't listen to the entire town hall may leave voice mails. All questions left on voice mail will be answered.
