L.A. Care Health Plan is again collaborating with the family of the late Leonard Nimoy, the legendary actor of Star Trek™ fame, on a new billboard and social media campaign that encourages vaccination against the coronavirus and the flu. This continuation of the Live Long and Prosper campaign will now include actor George Takei, a beloved member of the original Star Trek cast. LeVar Burton, who joined the campaign last year, will also be featured in the new billboards.
COVID-19 Therapeutics Provider Warmline
CDPH offers a COVID-19 Therapeutics Provider Warmline that can connect you immediately with another clinician for a free and confidential consultation on COVID-19 testing and treatment. Call 1-866-268-4322 (1-866-COVID-CA). The warmline is managed by the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) National Clinician Consultation Center. It’s available Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Pacific Time). You will only be asked for your basic contact and facility information. If you leave a voicemail after hours, your call will be returned the next business day.
We also highly recommend this summary of talking points for providers to address the most common misconceptions regarding COVID-19 therapeutics, including myths about who is "high-risk," side-effects from therapeutics, and the prevalence and danger of rebound. That easy-to-read document is located here: Therapeutics Myths and Facts. CDPH also has handouts that have been created for patients and members including educational graphics in English and Spanish.
