COVID—19 Vaccinations

Recently, the FDA has granted Emergency Use Authorization to Pfizer’s, Moderna’s and Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccines. Currently, vaccine distribution is following Maryland’s COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan.

Why should I receive the COVID-19 vaccine?

There are many important reasons to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. One of the most important reasons to receive the COVID-19 vaccine is to protect yourself, your family, and your friends from COVID-19. Receiving the COVID-19 vaccine is one of the most important things that we can all do to help end the COVID-19 pandemic.

When can I be vaccinated?

All Marylanders age 16 and older are now eligible to get vaccinated at any of the state’s mass vaccination sites, and effective Monday, April 12, all Marylanders age 16 and older will be eligible through all providers. Marylanders are encouraged to pre-register for appointments at mass vaccination sites via covidvax.maryland.gov or 1-855-MD-GOVAX. For additional information or assistance scheduling a vaccination appointment please contact our Customer Service Department Monday through Friday 9am to 6pm, at 1-888-JAI-1999.

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 testing options and the next steps to take it if you are interested in receiving a COVID-19 test.

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.


5 Healthy Spring Habits

It is always hard to stay in shape in the winter, whether it is holiday feasts, warm clothes or just a good TV marathon. With the warm weather coming, it is time to shed those layers and get healthy. Here are 5 tips to improve your health this year.

1.Prioritize Good Sleep

Sleep is so important, but it is often the last thing on our list. Remember to aim to get 7 to 9 hours of sleep a night. Be sure to keep your bedroom as quiet and dark as possible. If you have difficulty getting your mind to relax before bedtime, try meditation 5 minutes prior to bed.

2. Find Way to move; other than the gym

It is recommended that adults take 10,00 steps a day, so walk, run or jog if you can. With warmer weather approaching, plan a daily walk with friends, try a new outdoor sport or dance when you can.

3. Set a “good alarm”

Set an alarm to remind yourself to establish healthier habits, such as an alarm to remind you about bedtime, drinking more water, eating a healthy meal, or even to just stand up and stretch.

4. Create better sunscreen habits

Not all sunscreens are created equally. When looking for the best protection from the sun, be sure to pick up a lotion or spray with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) or 30 or higher. Also be sure that the sunscreen lists that it protects against UVA and UVB rays.

5. Greet the day

Some mornings are harder than others to get up but waking up at a consistent time can improve your overall health. The sunlight in the morning helps program the body and can actually help regularize your sleep schedule. Try taking a 20 minute walk after waking up to start the day.


Well Child Visits: What to Expect

It is important that your child receive regular “Well Child” checkups with your Pediatric Primary Care Provider (PCP). The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that all parents take their children to at least 12 check-ups during the first three years of life. During a well child visit, your child’s PCP will review your child’s health, aspects of their development, and provide any necessary vaccines. Your PCP may also screen your child for health problems; either through blood work or by asking health-related questions. These visits are also a good opportunity for you to ask any questions that you may have related to your child’s health and development. Your child’s PCP will develop and recommend a schedule for your child’s healthcare. Well Child visits are recommended at the following ages:

  • 3 to 5 days old.
  • By 1 month.
  • 2 months.
  • 4 months.
  • 6 months.
  • 9 months.
  • 1 year.
  • 15 months.
  • 18 months.
  • 2 years.
  • 30 months.
  • 3 years.

After age 3, Well Child visits are usually scheduled once a year.

If you are in need of an appointment for your child or transportation assistance for your child’s appointment, please contact our Customer Service Department today at 1-888-JAI-1999.
