Flu vaccine

Dear patients of the Family Clinic,

The flu is an acute viral disease. Children are at greatest risk of getting the flu, but hospitalizations and deaths occur primarily in the elderly, particularly among those with chronic illnesses. We highly encourage you to get a flu vaccine. You can find more information about the vaccine here.

The vaccine is available at a cost and requires an appointment. To schedule a vaccination appointment, contact your family nurse practitioner via e-mail or by calling the appropriate department.

Please do not come to the front desk if you have been experiencing flu-like symptoms.

Let’s keep ourselves and others safe!

Covid-19

Dear patients of the family clinic Perekliinik!

We care about your health. We have compiled a patient reminder on how to prevent the virus from spreading.

1) Wash your hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 continuous seconds!

2) Wash your hands as soon as you get home or to work!

3) If there is no possibility of handwashing, use disinfectant gels!

4) When sneezing or coughing, cover your mouth and nose with a disposable tissue or sleeve! Do not cover your mouth and nose with your hands! Discard the used tissue immediately and wash/disinfect your hands as soon as possible!

5) Avoid contact with sick persons!

6) Do not touch your eyes, mouth and nose with your hands.

7) If you are a grandparent, do not babysit your grandchildren, and if you are a parent, do not send your children to the grandparents – children usually have a mild viral illness, but older people are at risk.

8) Contact your older relatives, acquaintances, and friends over the phone to find out if they have everything they need at home. If possible, encourage them to stay at home even if they do not have any symptoms.

Let’s stay healthy!

Covid – 19

(16.03.2020)

Dear patient of Perekliinik!

Due to the pandemic spread of the coronavirus disease, the Government of the Republic has declared an emergency situation. As a result, the scheduled treatment of patients has been suspended! Please contact us by phone or e-mail only! We kindly ask you to NOT come to the family clinic! From 16 March 2020, remote appointments can be held via Skype, for example.

The provision of remote outpatient family physician services (remote appointments) due to the emergency situation is a way to protect the patient groups most at risk for severe course of the disease, as well as health care professionals, for whom avoiding the infection is of critical importance in terms of the sustainability of medical care!

As the whole of Estonia is a risk region, we ask all patients to:

– Not come to the family clinic – call us or send us an e-mail instead!

– Not overburden the phone lines and call the family clinic only if you have a health problem!

– Certificates of incapacity for work / care leave will be issued digitally!

– COVID-19 (coronavirus) testing is only done on patients in a severe situation!

– COVID-19 testing will not change the treatment scheme. There is no specific treatment: symptoms must be alleviated and in severe cases, life support is provided.

– Scheduled medical examination and appointments for chronic patients have been canceled! 

The spread and symptoms of COVID-19 (coronavirus):

– COVID-19 symptoms are similar to influenza symptoms.

– The virus may cause coughing, fever and trouble breathing.

– The virus spreads through human contact and is a droplet infection, spreading mostly through close contact with a virus suspect who exhibits symptoms similar to the virus, primarily cough.

– The incubation period of the virus is 2–14 days and the average is 5 days.

– As there is still some uncertainty about the spread of the virus and the symptoms, stricter measures are implemented as a precaution.

– One of the most important preventive measures of coronavirus infection is proper hand hygiene.

Recommendations by the World Health Organization for protection against the virus:

– The infected person should stay in a room which can be ventilated (windows and doors can be opened)

– The infected person should move around in the household as little as possible. It must be possible to ventilate the rooms afterwards.

– The people in the same household should keep distance from the infected person (at least 1 meter) or stay in separate rooms/beds.

– The infected person should be taken care of by one designated person in good health and with no chronic diseases or diseases indicative of immunodeficiency.

– Hand washing and disinfection is necessary after contact with the infected person or any items around them.

– Use paper towels or cloth towels to dry your hands (wash wet towels immediately and replace with a dry one).

– The infected person and the person caring for him/her should wear a mask for protection! When sneezing and coughing, disposable handkerchiefs should be used or the mouth and nose covered with a handkerchief. All personal protection equipment must be disposed of or washed after use!

– Make sure to wash and disinfect any surfaces used daily!

– Disinfect phones and tablets as well!

– Disinfect remote controls (including for toys)!

– Disinfect door handles, handrails and switches!

– The patient’s clothes, bedsheets, etc. must be washed in a washing-machine at 60–90 °C!
