Health Tips for the Fall

Fall is here and with Fall comes the beginning of the cold and flu season. No one wants to be at home sick missing out on all of the fun that Fall offers. Here are a few tips to help you stay healthy this Fall.

Get Your Flu Shot! This is a very important health tip for the Fall and Winter months. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “The single best way to prevent the flu is to get a flu vaccine each season.” Schedule an appointment with your Primary Care Provider (PCP) today to receive this very important vaccine.

Wash Your Hands. Washing your hands can help prevent the spread of germs. During the Fall, most people are cooking, eating, shaking hands, shopping in crowded places and hugging a lot, so it is especially important to keep your hands clean. If you do not have access to clean water and soap, hand sanitizer is a good alternate option.

Stay Hydrated. Be sure to hydrate each day by drinking water throughout the day.

Eat Nutrient Rich Food. The foods you eat can also help prevent the cold; think bright, colorful fruits and vegetables. A fan of dairy? Try a Greek yogurt, which is packed with probiotics and has been shown to boost the immune system. Another immunity booster that you can find in abundance this season are pumpkins; which are available fresh and canned.

Schedule Preventative Health Check-Ups. Be sure to visit your PCP this year to ensure that you are scheduled and seen for any important preventative health check-ups, such as a pap smear and breast cancer screening for women, or colorectal cancer screening for both men and women. For more information on the Preventative Care Guidelines for Adults, please see the back page of this newsletter.

Well Child Visits: What to Expect

It is important that your baby receive regular “Well Child” check-ups with your Pediatric Primary Care Provider (PCP). The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that all new parents take their children to at least 12 checkups 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. Well Child 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. Often times, 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.


Schedule Your Annual Physical Today & Earn Your HEALTHY Reward!

It is important to see your Primary Care Provider (PCP) at least once a year for your Annual Physical. This yearly “check-in” with your PCP enables your provider to get a sense of your overall health, so that they can help you create “health goals” to work towards, based on your health status.

Also, as a member of Jai Medical Systems, after you receive your annual physical, you are eligible for your annual Healthy Reward! After you have received your physical, please check your mail. You will receive a Healthy Rewards Redemption Certificate. You will need to complete this certificate in order to redeem your reward. Please see your PCP as soon as possible.
