To Do: Get Your Flu Shot

The CDC recommends everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine. This year, the flu vaccine is more important than ever before.

As a reminder, different flu vaccines are approved for use in different groups of people. There are flu shots approved for use in children as young as 6 months of age and flu shots approved for use in adults 65 years and older. Flu shots are also recommended for use in pregnant women and people with chronic health conditions.

Contact your Primary Care Provider today to schedule your appointment to get the Flu vaccine. If you need assistance with getting your family vaccinated against the flu today, please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-888-JAI-1999.


Cervical Health Awareness Month

January is National Cervical Health Awareness Month. You can lower your risk for cervical cancer by getting screened regularly, starting at age 21.

Screening Tests

There are two tests that help to screen and detect cervical cancer:

  • The Pap test (or Pap smear) looks for precancers, which are cell changes on the cervix that might become cervical cancer if they are not treated appropriately. You should get your first Pap test at age 21. If your test re-sult is normal, you can wait three years for your next test.

  • The human papillomavirus (HPV) test looks for the HPV virus that can cause these cell changes. HPV vaccination prevents new HPV infections, but does not treat existing infections or diseases. This is why the HPV vaccine works best when given before any exposure to HPV. It is recommended that adult women get screened for cervical cancer regularly, even if they have received the HPV vaccine.

At Jai Medical Systems, we understand that COVID-19 has changed almost every aspect of our daily lives. Jai Medical Systems wants you to know that we are here to help. More than ever, we are committed to ensuring that our members have the most up-to-date information related to COVID-19.

COVID-19 Testing

As of June 15, 2020, Maryland residents can now be tested for COVID-19 with or without symptoms, with or without a referral, and with or without an appointment at various testing sites located throughout the State of Maryland. To find a testing site near you, please visit the Maryland Department of Health’s website at https://coronavirus.maryland.gov/pages/symptoms-testing.

You may also call our Customer Service Department directly to learn more about test-ing options and the next steps to take it if you are interested in receiving a COVID-19 test. Our Customer Service Department is available Monday through Friday 9am to 6pm, at 1-888-JAI-1999.

Contact Tracing

Contact tracing is the process of identifying people who may have come into contact with an individual with an infectious disease. For the coronavirus 2019 pandemic, contact tracing begins with a phone interview of the positive COVID-19 patient and obtaining details regarding the patient’s contacts, who they have interacted with and where they have gone recently. The next step involves locating people with whom the infected person has interacted during a two-week period.

What kind of questions might I be asked by a contact tracer?

If you are called by a contact tracer, they will ask about your health, any potential symptoms you may have, and the duration of those symptoms. They may ask about your whereabouts for a specific period of time. They will ask for verification of your date of birth, address, and any other phone numbers you may have.

What kind of questions will a contact tracer never ask?

A contact investigator will never ask you for your social security number, financial or bank account information, or personal details unrelated to COVID-19. They will not ask for photographs or videos of any kind. They will not ask for your passwords. They will not ask for money or payment.
