COVID-19 Vaccination Information

Let's keep our community healthy! The COVID-19 vaccine is safe, effective, and the best way to end the spread.
We understand that some people in the community are worried about the safety of the vaccine, or might be concerned about side effects. The following information will help explain why vaccination is such an important tool to keep you and your community safe and end the spread of this deadly virus. All LA County residents 12 years and older are currently eligible to receive the vaccine.

• Non-emancipated minors need the consent of the parent, legal guardian, or other adult having legal custody of the minor to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. COVID-19 vaccine Providers are responsible for verifying that informed consent has been obtained for non-emancipated minors, either in person or in writing. Emancipated minors do not need parental consent to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

Los Angeles is the most populous county in the entire nation, with more than 10 million residents. The vaccination process is dependent on supply of vaccine and the availability of individuals to administer it. We ask you to remain hopeful and patient as this process unfolds; everyone who wants a vaccine will ultimately be offered one.

As for what we can all do until everyone who wants a vaccine has been offered one: we must continue to follow the guidelines related to masking, distancing and not gathering with those outside of our household. Now is the time for us to double down on our efforts to keep ourselves, our families and our community safe.

Patient Safety

Patient safety is the top priority of Alhambra Hospital Medical Center. Our healthcare team continues to follow the most updated guidelines of the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and the LA County Department of Health.

Basic Infection Prevention.

As with good practice especially during the flu season, we remind everyone including our staff, visitors and community members to follow basic infection prevention practices: cleaning hands with soap and water or alcohol based hand rub, covering your cough/sneeze, avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands and staying away from public if you have cold or flu-like symptoms and seeking medical care.

CDC information on the Coronavirus: www.cdc.gov

What we know about the Coronavirus

2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is a virus (more specifically, a coronavirus) identified as the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness first detected in Wuhan, China. Early on, many of the patients in the outbreak in Wuhan, China reportedly had some link to a large seafood and animal market, suggesting animal-to-person spread. However, a growing number of patients reportedly have not had exposure to animal markets, indicating person-to-person spread is occurring.

Symptoms

For confirmed COVID-19 infections, reported illnesses have ranged from people with little to no symptoms to people being severely ill and dying. Symptoms can include:

Fever

Cough

Shortness of breath

However, as a reminder, CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

Stay home when you are sick.

Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

Steps to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 if you are sick:


Stay home except to get medical care

You should not leave your home, except to get medical care. Do not go to work, school, or public areas, and do not use public transportation or taxis.

Separate yourself from other people in your home

As much as possible, you should stay in a different room from other people in your home. Also, you should use a separate bathroom, if available.

Call ahead before visiting your doctor

Before your medical appointment, call the healthcare provider and tell them that you have, or are being evaluated for, 2019-nCoV infection. This will help the healthcare provider's office take steps to keep other people from getting infected.

Wear a facemask

You should wear a facemask when you are in the same room with other people and when you visit a healthcare provider. If you cannot wear a facemask, the people who live with you should wear one while they are in the same room with you.

Cover your coughs and sneezes

Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, or you can cough or sneeze into your sleeve. Throw used tissues in a lined trash can, and immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

Wash your hands

Wash your hands often and thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. You can use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Avoid sharing household items

You should not share dishes, drinking glasses, cups, eating utensils, towels, bedding, or other items with other people in your home. After using these items, you should wash them thoroughly with soap and water.

Monitor your symptoms

Get medical care quickly if your illness is getting worse (for example if you are having trouble breathing). Call the healthcare provider ahead of time and tell them that you have, or are being evaluated for, COVID-19 infection. This will help the healthcare provider's office take steps to keep other people from getting infected.

Avoid contact with pets and other animals

Do not handle pets or other animals while sick. Although there have not been reports of pets or other animals becoming sick with COVID-19, several types of coronaviruses can cause illness in animals and spread between animals and people. Until we know more, avoid contact with animals and wear a facemask if you must be around animals or care for a pet.
