Remarks from Landmark’s Chief Medical Officer, Michael Le, MD.
As COVID-19 continues to affect our communities, remember that as a Landmark-eligible patient, you can stay home and have medical and behavioral health care come to you.
As we have seen the strain that COVID-19 has had on the health care system and our world, please continue to take precaution. The CDC is encouraging you to stay home.
As the COVID-19 vaccine becomes available to certain patient populations, I remain hopeful. I received the vaccine and experienced no adverse side effects. I encourage you to stay up to date on when the vaccine will be available to you in your community.
Landmark providers are continuing to take precautions to help keep you safe. All patients are asked coronavirus screening questions prior to a home visit. Then we determine whether a visit can proceed as normal, or with protective equipment (such as a mask and gown), or if only a phone visit can be done due to an active case of the coronavirus.
Keep your Landmark appointments. Ask your Landmark provider if receiving the COVID-19 vaccine is the right choice for you.
Taking care of your mental health during an infectious disease outbreak.
The outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) may be stressful. Fear about a disease can cause strong emotions. If you experience changes in your sleep or eating, increased use of alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs, or worsening health conditions, call your Landmark care team.
COVID-19 Vaccine Information
The COVID-19 vaccine is free to anyone who wants one in 2021. Even if you have already had COVID-19 and recovered, you should get the vaccine. Reinfection is possible, and the vaccine may protect against new variants of the virus.
The COVID-19 vaccine offers hope that we can soon be safe and back together with family and friends. Researchers have been working on vaccines for the
coronavirus family for years. The available vaccines have successfully passed testing and are FDA and UEA approved.
Additionally, here are some resources we recommend for our patients.
Remember, when the doctor comes to your home, you can avoid viruses found in:
• public transportation,
• doctor’s office waiting rooms, and
• busy care facilities.
Landmark takes precautions to help keep our providers healthy and will work to keep you safe.
Landmark Health and its affiliated medical groups work with health plans to bring medical, behavioral, palliative and social care to patients living with multiple chronic conditions.
We don’t discriminate. Landmark Health and its affiliated medical groups (Landmark) comply with Federal civil rights laws. Landmark does not exclude people or treat them differently because of race, color, national origin, age, disability or sex.
