l Notes for DY 2 to 8 (PDF) Core Quality Withhold Technical Notes for DY 2 to 10 (PDF) Riverside University Health System - Health Advisory Public Health Advisory - Respiratory Viruses (PDF) A Message From IEHP Medical Director, Dr. Takashi Wada The 2022-2023 influenza season continues to coincide with circulation of COVID-19 virus (SARS-CoV-2). As of August 2022, approximately 94.2 million cases of COVID-19 had been reported in the United States. Influenza vaccination remains an important tool for the prevention of potentially severe respiratory illness, which helps decrease the stress on the U.S. health care system. IEHP DualChoice members who are 18 years of age or older may obtain flu vaccines through the IEHP Pharmacy Vaccine Network. Vaccine Notice: Access to Pharmacy Vaccine Network (PDF) Mpox Vaccination Locations San Bernardino County: Monkeypox (mpox) – Department of Public Health Riverside County: Mpox Vaccine Locations – Riverside University Health System Please advise members to call before going in for a vaccination as some locations are only available with appointments. Members may make appointments for the JYNNEOS vaccine at Mpox Testing As of December 8, 2022, no commercial testing is available for the diagnosis of Mpox. Providers may contact CDC in the diagnosis, management of patients with suspected Mpox, and for any additional information regarding Mpox connect with the CDC Emergency Operations Center. Phone: 1-770-488-7100, Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM EST After Hours Phone: 1-404-639-2888 Treatment Mpox patients usually recover fully within 2-4 weeks without the need for medical treatment. While there are no treatments specifically for Mpox, the virus that causes Mpox is similar to the smallpox virus and therefore antiviral drugs developed to protect against smallpox may be used. The antiviral drug, tecovirimat (TPOXX), has been approved by the FDA to treat smallpox in adults and children. If you prescribe tecovirimat to treat members with Mpox the member must sign a consent form stating tecovirimat is an investigational drug that has not yet been approved by the FDA for treatment of Mpox. More information about tecovirimat visit Frequently Asked Influenza (Flu) Questions: 2022-2023 Season (CDC Recommendations) What’s New for 2022-2023  By clicking on these links, you will be leaving the IEHP website. The composition of flu vaccines has been updated. For the 2022-2023 flu season, there are three flu vaccines that are preferentially recommended for people 65 years and older. These are Fluzone High-Dose Quadrivalent vaccine, Flublok Quadrivalent recombinant flu vaccine and Fluad Quadrivalent adjuvanted flu vaccine. The recommended timing of vaccination is similar to last season. For most people who need only one dose for the season, September and October are generally good times to get vaccinated. Vaccination in July and August is not recommended for most adults but can be considered for some groups. While ideally it’s recommended to get vaccinated by the end of October, it’s important to know that vaccination after October can still provide protection during the peak of flu season. The age indication for the cell culture-based inactivated flu vaccine, Flucelvax Quadrivalent (ccIIV4), changed from 2 years and older to 6 months and older. Pre-filled Afluria Quadrivalent flu shots for children are not expected to be available this season. However, children can receive this vaccine from a multidose vial at the recommended dose.

Member Testimonials - Our Members

group of students from the Inland Empire. More than 30 recipient students grew up in the Inland Empire and more than 50% are first generation medical students and grew up in low-income households. Through the scholarship fund, aspiring healthcare professionals will be guided through the system and connected to the health plan’s provider network. This allows students to pursue successful careers in healthcare immediately after graduation to help support the region’s growing population. Loma Linda University School of Medicine Inland Empire Medical Community Service Awardees Class of 2022 Ye Jin Jeon Ye Jin's Why: “I applied for the Inland Empire Medical Community Service Award because the goal and priority to expand access to care and healthcare provider options for the Southern California region aligns with my calling. As a child growing up in the San Bernardino County, I saw the economic disproportion within my own neighborhood, and this compelled me…God has led me pursue my medical career” Class of 2024 Edwin Choque Edwin's Why: “Simply put, my heart lies in the Inland Empire. This community of individuals have fostered me and loved me since I was a child and all I can hope is to pay that love and care forward. . . . My dream is to be on the front lines as a representative for these individuals who frequently become marginalized…” University of California, Riverside Dean's Mission Recipients Four Year Award Elizabeth Celaya-Ojeda Elizabeth's Why: “I want to work particularly with the underserved in this area because I truly believe that being a physician is a privilege and with that there is a responsibility to be an advocate for those who are facing health disparities. I am particularly interested in providing care to underserved Native American and Hispanic communities. Not many healthcare providers are aware of the disparities these two communities face and I want to be an advocate for them, especially in the Inland Empire.” Alfonso Parocua Alfonso's Why: “Growing up, my family lacked meaningful access to healthcare and relied on a local free clinic as our only means of interacting with a physician. Through my personal experience with the free clinic, I developed a passion for service to the underserved communities who lack meaningful access to basic healthcare amenities due to low socioeconomic status. I sought opportunities that would allow me to pay my gratitude forward by becoming part of the solution to healthcare disparities in Inland Southern California. Through my volunteer efforts in free clinics and other community involvement programs, I witnessed the passion and dedication that health care providers and volunteers in the area have towards the underserved community. This realization deepened my connection to Inland Southern California because I was reminded so much of the health care professionals that helped my family when they couldn't help themselves.” Two Year Award Cesar Fortuna Cesar's Why: “A San Bernardino native, I have had the opportunity to volunteer in my community as a Spanish language translator for free clinics. Most patients I have spoken with fell into the category of uninsured, underinsured, or undocumented. It became clear the extent of need in this region when I would translate to the providers that this was the first-time dozens of our patients had ever seen a medical professional; however, this wasn’t uncommon. To these patients and their stories, I thank them because they inspire me to pursue Emergency Medicine where I can become a valuable player in providing care, providing resources, or providing comfort.” Lavinia Mitroi Lavinia's Why: “My goal of pursuing a career at the intersection of medicine and public health is driven by a desire to put patients and communities at the center of our health care system in the U.S. This desire was sparked most poignantly by my own experiences as an IEHP patient growing up in the Inland Empire. As I prepare for a future career as a pediatrician in this region, I hope to serve as an advocate for children and families, providing direct health services but also creating systems change.” Armando Navarro Armando's Why: “The earliest memory of my grandfather is him telling me, “Mijo, tienes que aprender Español para ayudar tu comunidad, you have to learn how to speak Spanish to help your community”. These words were often repeated to me by my grandfather who lamented the fact that he only spoke Spanish. I witnessed the health disparities affecting my community; doctors who did not speak Spanish, parents who could not afford a trip to the doctors’ office, and a healthcare system that was not inclusive of my community’s culture. I have a duty to give back to a school, a community, that has given me so much.” Christ Ordookhanian Christ's Why: “I see the medical profession through the lens of an individual who had lived through challenging times and witnessed how one individual provider can make such and impact when their heart is in the right place. My dedication to our underserved community stems from that of a lifelong mission I have set for myself which is to ensure I give back to a community that I am deeply associated with, they are my founding roots in the United States, and I vow to be at the forefront of the next generation of physicians that care and give the underserved hope.” University of California, Riverside Dean's Mission Recipients Daphne Du Daphne's Why: “I spent most of my life in underprivileged areas and saw firsthand how difficult healthcare access could be through inadequate financial resources, transportation, or translation services. Thanks to this investment in my studies, there is less stress in my life. I can focus on my studies and eventually give back to the community by becoming a physician who will advocate for patients without meaningful access to health care.” Judith Gonzales Judith's Why: “As a first-generation college student, there have always been many barriers in my path to higher education. I am the eldest daughter of an immigrant family, and it is truly an honor to be able to reach this point in my education and in my career, and to give back to my parents who have sacrificed so much for me and my sisters. Growing up in an underserved community showed me the long-lasting impacts of health inequities and strengthened my resolve to pursue a career in medicine. Working in the Inland Empire, I hope to not only address, but actively work towards combating the health inequity present in our communities.” Jordan Hough Jordan's Why: “Despite disadvantages encountered when living in a low-income community, I am grateful for the privilege I had in meeting physicians dedicated to their practice and willing to share that love through mentorship. These individuals have served as exemplary medical professionals and have encouraged me to follow in their footsteps. As a future physician, I aspire to empathetically care for patients by allowing my past experiences to enhance my understanding of their needs. I also plan to incorporate teaching into patient care by presenting opportunities for students to shadow and be mentored for a career in medicine.” Diana Martinez Diana's Why: “I am the daughter of Mexican Immigrants and grew up in Compton, California where I unfortunately was quickly desensitized to violence and was able to tell the difference between a firework and a gun shot. My mother had to travel a significant distance to ensure we had adequate healthcare. Despite these conditions, my parents always stressed education and did their best to give me what I needed. These life circumstances ignited my passion to serve those in disadvantaged communities, which I interacted with throughout my educational career. The Inland Empire Health Program Scholarship means I can achieve my dream –by practicing medicine in a community that deserves adequate, equitable, and accessible healthcare. I will serve as a bilingual physician in the Inland Empire that can serve families like my own and many more.”

0,000 美元,發放給 10 名申請 IEDC 獎學金的學生。 獎學金於 6 月 16 日在 San Bernardino Valley College 為學生發放,IEDC 成員 Denise Booker 也憑藉將六月節 (Juneteenth) 理念貫穿河濱郡社區而受到表彰。  「為他們提供機會、援助以及繼續倡導和支持那些捍衛人人平等的人士,對於讓我們的地區獲得最佳的護理和健康活力至關重要,」IEHP 社區健康主任 (IEHP Director of Community Health) 兼 IEDC 董事會主席 (IEDC Board President Gabriel Uribe) 博士說。「自 2019 年以來,IEDC 已向本科、研究生、職業或技術學位的 Inland Empire 有残障的學生髮放了 33 份獎學金。我們希望能夠透過合作夥伴關係和社區支持一直延續這個傳統。」  IEDC 成立於 2006 年,在 IEHP、Community Access Center 和 PossAbilities of Loma Linda University Health.等合作夥伴的支持下日益強大。如今,該組織匯集了來自 Inland Empire 多個組織的 900 多家服務提供商,它們專為老年人和殘障人士提供服務。  「我們必須竭盡所能去創造公平的競爭環境,並為服務不到位和邊緣化社區。這正是 Booker 夫人振奮人心之處。她敢於站出來,敢於發聲,她為社區帶來了積極的改變,」Uribe 補充道。  Booker 自 2017 年以來便是 IEDC 的一名成員,並且一直在積極倡導黑人社區。Booker 透過自己的組織和黑人合作組織 (Black Collaborative),領導宣傳工作,向當地政客和領導人宣傳六月節,以及這一天在我們國家歷史上的重要性。  「與 IEDC 的合作讓我有機會為社區的部分成員提供幫助,否則僅靠自己的一份力量預計難以實現,」Booker 說。「我與 IEDC 的關係正如非洲的一句諺語一樣,‘一人獨行走得快,與人同行走得遠。」

最新消息 - 從 Medi-Cal 到醫學院:IEHP 會員要求服務 Inland Empire

所做,並且會在未來持續下去的事情。    IEHP 透過在 2020 年頒發的創新醫療保健獎學金 (Healthcare Scholarship Fund) 為 Hough 給予獎勵,讓 Hough 在從 Medi-Cal 會員到醫學院學生的旅程中獲得豐碩成果。 Hough 是 Victorville 本地人,目前就讀加州科學大學和醫學院醫學院 (California University of Science and Medicine,CUSM) 醫學系三年級,同時也是 50 位獲得 IEHP 首次頒發獎學金的學生之一。健康計畫透過年度獎學金來維持該計畫,提供以下三所醫學院的全額學費到部分學費:加州科學大學和醫學院醫學院 (CUSM)、羅馬琳達大學以及加州大學河濱分校 Hough 表示:「這個獎學金對我而言可說無比重要。對於一個在經濟拮据的家庭中長大的孩子,上醫學院似乎是一個遙不可及的夢想。」 IEHP 創立了獎學金基金,幫助 Riverside 和 San Bernardino 等縣解決提供者短缺的問題。「透過為當地的醫學院學生給予支持,我們有把握他們在畢業後願意為 Inland Empire 提供服務,並且創建出醫療保健專業人員的管道,能夠秉持愛心與同理心,致力為我們的社區提供服務。」IEHP 執行長 Jarrod McNaughton 做出如上表示。 Hough 在加州州立大學富勒頓分校 (California State University Fullerton) 選修人文科學課程時發現她對於醫學的熱情,並且在並且在加州橘縣兒童健康 (Children’s Health Orange County) 花費無數小時擔任志工。 在有過這些經歷以及受到幾位指導醫師的鼓舞之下,她決定從事醫生這個職業。Hough 刻意地只申請當地的學校,這樣她才能持續維持與 Inland Empire 根源的聯繫。Hough 說道:「大部分的人申請學校的範圍非常廣,只要想讀的學校都會申請。但是我感覺留在這個地區非常重要,因此我只有申請三間醫學院。這個做法非常冒險,但是還好我成功了。」 Hough 記得在她的成長過程中,在就讀醫科這個夢想上並沒有獲得太多的指導或榜樣,因此成為醫生看似是不可能的事情。她表示:「當我收到錄取通知時,確實感到非常震驚。」   透過醫學院的入學流程,Hough 瞭解到有關 IEHP 的醫療保健獎學金的資訊,以及它為願意留在 Inland Empire 的本地學生給予支持的目標。 Hough 記得 IEHP 是她在小時候便已經參加的健康計畫,並且感謝他們如何宣傳令自己產生共鳴的使命。她申請並且獲得了四年獎學金。  「在獲得獎學金之後,我感覺自己如釋重負,」Hough 表示。「我的內心對於 IEHP 表示由衷感謝。任何言語也無法表達我的感激之情。」 加州就讀醫學院的費用自從 2013 年開始一直保持持續上升的趨勢,每年增加約 1,500 美元,目前平均的總計費用達到 $218,792。對於許多 IE 學生來說,這使得成為一名醫生的夢想對他們而言更加遙不可及,並且對於該地區持續提供者的短缺造成嚴重影響。 「縮短懷有抱負的 IE 醫療專業人員以及當地醫學院之間的差距,為該地區最弱勢的人群服務,是本獎學金計畫當初設計的宗旨。」McNaughton 表示。「我們非常高興有機會能夠為 Jordan 以及我們的 HSF 獲獎者在他們成為醫師的道路上給予支持,同時尤其渴望將他們的願望和能力聯繫起來,為他們非常鍾情的社區提供最佳照護以及活力滿滿的健康。」 健康計畫將為醫學系學生在其就讀醫學院的過程中舉辦社交和支援活動,包括 5 月 3 日在 IEHP 總部舉行的晚宴。若要瞭解更多有關 IEHP 的醫療保健獎學金的資訊,請造訪。

COVID-19 - COVID-19 疫苗

,也不會導致感染 COVID-19。接種疫苗者可能出現一些輕微副作用,但並不會造成傷害,並且只持續幾天。疫苗可幫助我們結束疫情並拯救生命。已接種疫苗者應繼續配戴口罩及勤洗手,且在公共場所保持至少 6 英呎的社交距離。如需瞭解更多資訊,IEHP 會員可繼續造訪 IEHP 網站及/或造訪加州衛生部 (California Department of Health) 網站 (。 造訪 MYTURN.CA.GOV,以查找附近的疫苗接種診所。 疫苗如何增強免疫力 雖然 COVID-19 疫苗相對較新,但支援疫苗開發的技術與科學原理已發展數十年之久。在下方影片中,我們展示了多年的疫苗研究與進階技術如何支援全世界研究人員和科學家妥善開發 mRNA 疫苗,以協助遏止全球傳染病的擴散。 CDC 更新:PFIZER 疫苗已完全獲得 FDA 的批准。 2021 年 8 月 23 日,美國食品藥物管理局 (U.S. Food and Drug Administration, FDA) 首次批准可投入使用的 COVID-19 疫苗,即 Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 疫苗(眾所周知的 Pfizer 疫苗)。該核准疫苗現以 Comirnaty (koe-mir’-na-tee) 品牌上市,可幫助年滿 16 歲者預防 COVID-19 疾病。Pfizer 疫苗適用於 5 至 15 歲的兒童,並可根據緊急使用權,針對某些免疫力低下的人士進行第三劑接種。  請注意,Pfizer 疫苗和 Comirnaty 為同一種疫苗。FDA 報告顯示其配方相同且可通用。    何處可接種疫苗? 對於想要接種該疫苗的會員,請參考以下幾種選項: IEHP 建議線上造訪 My Turn (。My Turn 是加州公共衛生局 (Department of Public Health) 的一站式便利網站,需要接種 COVID-19 疫苗的人士可: 安排第一劑、第二劑和加強劑的疫苗接種時間。 安排家庭或團體疫苗接種時間 尋找所在區域的免預約接種診所 安排上門疫苗接種時間(如果需要) 安排交通服務(如果需要) 如果無法接入網際網路,請致電加州 COVID-19 熱線 1-833-422-4255,以尋求相同的服務。 CVS 和 Walgreens 等大型連鎖藥房也提供疫苗接種。大部分均提供免預約疫苗接種服務。IEHP 建議先致電相關藥房予以確認。 另外,亦可透過所在郡縣的公共衛生部門進行線上疫苗預約登記。 對於河濱郡,請造訪。 對於聖貝納迪諾郡,請造訪。  我是否需要支付任何疫苗費用? 不需要。願意接種疫苗的所有人都無需支付任何費用。  疫苗是否安全? 安全,全國與加州最頂尖醫療專家一致認為,COVID-19 疫苗安全且有效。此疫苗已在大型臨床試驗中進行測試,以確保其符合各項安全標準。來自不同年齡層、種族與族裔群體以及具有不同醫療狀況的許多人都參與了試驗。 接種疫苗後是否會出現任何副作用? 接種 COVID-19 疫苗之後,大部分人不會遭遇嚴重的問題。接種疫苗之後產生的所有輕微症狀通常會在一週內自行消失。但如果開始出現嚴重頭痛、腹部疼痛、腿部疼痛/腫脹,或者呼吸急促、胸痛、感覺心跳加速、心房顫動或劇烈心跳聲等任何症狀,請立即致電醫師。醫師或醫療服務提供者會向您說明所有潛在副作用,以及您應該如何處理。  自 Moderna 與 Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 疫苗獲得緊急使用授權以來,接種此等疫苗的部分人士患上心肌炎與心包膜炎等疾病。大多數人是在接種疫苗第二劑後的數天內開始出現相關症狀。現已有數例確認報告顯示,疫苗接種者罹患心肌炎與心包膜炎,尤其是在 30 歲及以下的男性中。此種情況引起了各方疑慮,目前尚在進一步調查當中。不過,接種 COVID-19 疫苗之後罹患心肌炎與心包膜炎的案例其實非常罕見,要知道在 2020 年 12 月 14 日至 2021 年 6 月 21 日期間,全美總共施打了超過 3.18 億劑 COVID-19 疫苗。 接種疫苗是否會出現任何長期副作用? COVID-19 疫苗已在大型臨床試驗中進行測試,以評估其安全性。我們需要花費更多時間,並需要更多人接種疫苗,才能真正瞭解是否會出現非常罕見或長期的副作用。食品藥物管理局 (Food and Drug Administration, FDA) 及美國疾病控制與預防中心 (Centers for Disease Control, CDC) 將繼續監控 COVID-19 疫苗的安全性。醫療服務提供者需要向「疫苗不良事件報告系統」(Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, VAERS) 報告疫苗接種相關的任何問題或不良事件。 如果我出現副作用,該怎麼辦? 請立即聯絡您的醫師。CDC 推出了一款名為 V-Safe 的智能手機新工具,可用於檢查 COVID-19 疫苗接種者的健康狀況。當您接種疫苗時,您也會收到一張 V-Safe 傳單,告知您如何加入計畫。如果您加入計畫,您將定期收到包含問卷調查連結的簡訊,供您報告在接種 COVID-19 疫苗後所遭遇的任何問題或副作用。 疫苗是否會導致我感染 COVID-19? 不會,疫苗無法讓您感染 COVID-19,因為疫苗並不包含任何傳染性病毒。 我需要接種幾劑疫苗? Pfizer 與 Moderna 疫苗需要接種兩劑,每劑間隔 3 至 4 週。雖然第一劑已建立了保護力,但您仍然需要在數週後接種第二劑,以獲得疫苗所能提供的最大保護力。醫師會向您告知何時接種第二劑,具體間隔時間依據疫苗種類的不同而有所差異。J&J 疫苗僅需要接種一劑。 接種 2 劑疫苗之後,是否還需要配戴口罩以及避免與他人近距離接觸? 是的。在專家們進一步瞭解 COVID-19 疫苗所能提供的保護力之前,請繼續使用目前已知有助於阻止 COVID-19 傳播的所有工具。也即是說,您必須繼續配戴口罩、勤洗手、避免群聚,且在公共場所應至少保持 6 英呎的社交距離。 我是否需要接種加強劑疫苗?研究表明,接種 COVID-19 疫苗後,由於變種病毒的變化,疫苗對病毒的防護力和防止感染變種病毒的能力可能會隨著時間的推移而有所降低。不過,接種加強劑疫苗有望提高對 COVID-19 及其變種病毒的免疫反應,從而強化對病毒的防護力。 誰可以接種加強劑疫苗? 年滿 12 歲且完全接種疫苗的所有人均可接種加強劑疫苗,但接種加強劑疫苗的時間因疫苗和年齡層而有所差異。 我何時可以接種加強劑疫苗? 如果已接種 Pfizer-BioNTech 疫苗,則年滿 12 歲的所有人都應至少在完成初始 COVID-19 疫苗接種系列五個月後再接種加強劑疫苗。 如果已接種 Moderna 疫苗,則年滿 18 歲的成人應至少在完成初始 COVID-19 疫苗接種系列六個月後再接種加強劑疫苗。 如果已接種 Johnson & Johnson 的 Janssen 疫苗,則年滿 18 歲的成人應至少在接種 J&J/Janssen COVID-19 疫苗兩個月後再接種加強劑疫苗。 接種加強劑疫苗是否有任何副作用?接種加強劑疫苗後,您可能會出現副作用。這些是人體開始建立 COVID-19 防護力的正常徵象。 兒童與嬰兒是否可能感染 COVID-19? 可能會。兒童也會感染 COVID-19。感染 COVID-19 的大部分兒童都僅有輕微症狀,或者可能完全無症狀,也即是無症狀感染者。感染 COVID-19 的兒童人數少於成人。不過,對於存在特定醫療狀況的嬰兒(未滿 1 歲者)與兒童而言,感染 COVID-19 的風險可能較高。 兒童是否能接種 COVID-19 疫苗? COVID-19 疫苗適用於年滿 5 歲的兒童。如需瞭解更多資訊,請造訪 CDC 網站和/或所在郡的公共衛生局網站:  按一下此處進入聖貝納迪諾郡網站 按一下此處進入河濱郡網站 接種疫苗之後,多久可獲得保護力? 雖然接種第一劑疫苗後便會立即建立保護力,不過 COVID-19 疫苗需要接種兩劑,每劑間隔 3 至 4 週。也即是說,在接種第二劑後一至兩週時,才能獲得疫苗所能提供的最大保護力。 我可否同時接種 COVID-19 疫苗及流感疫苗? 可以。CDC 已批准兒童、青少年及成人可在同一天(以及相隔 14 天內)接種常規疫苗和 COVID-19 疫苗。請諮詢醫師,討論哪種方案最適合您。 如果我先前曾確診 COVID-19,是否仍然可以接種疫苗? 可以。我們建議所有人都接種 COVID-19 疫苗,即使曾感染 COVID-19 也不例外。原因在於 COVID-19 可能會二次感染。如果在過去三個月內曾被診斷為確診者,請與醫師討論何時應接種疫苗。 IEHP 是否提供前往 COVID-19 疫苗接種診所的交通服務? 是的,IEHP 可提供前往您居住郡之 COVID-19 疫苗接種診所的交通服務。 如何申請交通服務? 請致電 1-800-440-4347 與 IEHP 交通客服中心聯絡。 司機是否會等我? 抱歉,司機不等人。該交通服務為往返接送。您需要聯絡交通服務提供者,在準備好返回時要求提供返程接送。 我可否攜家人同行? IEHP 可為 IEHP 會員及一名同行者提供交通服務。 申請交通接送需要多久? IEHP 將在 5 個工作日內協助安排前往 COVID-19 疫苗接種診所的交通服務。不過,我們無法保證可處理同日申請。 我何處可瞭解 COVID-19 與 COVID-19 疫苗的相關資訊? 如需更多資訊,IEHP 會員可造訪 IEHP 網站或加州衛生部網站。會員還可透過加州新冠病毒響應網站或 CDC 網站進一步瞭解 COVID-19
