Primary Care Partners offers free Health & Wellness Coaching for all of our patients. If you know what you need to do to improve your health, but don’t know how to take the first step in the context of your daily life, then Health & Wellness Coaching can help get you on track. Paula Anderson, a certified Health & Wellness Coach, provides coaching services to Primary Care Partners’ patients at no cost. “Often it’s just an issue of defining what matters most to the patient to get them on the right path,” said Anderson. “Everyone knows diet and exercise is important, but it’s not as simple as just doing it because unidentified stressors can derail the best of plans.” “We talk about the patient’s goals and then take the time to discover which small, specific steps can get them where they want to go.” If you feel this service would be helpful for you, ask your provider to make a referral. Due to COVID, all coaching visits are by phone at a time most convenient for each patient. Sessions can continue weekly for a month or longer, depending on each patient’s needs.

Primary Care Partners now has a high dose flu vaccine for people age 65+. The high dose vaccine contains four times the amount of antigen (the inactivated virus that promotes a protective immune response) as a regular flu shot. It is associated with a stronger immune response following vaccination (higher antibody production). Results from a clinical trial of more than 30,000 participants showed that adults 65 years and older who received the high dose vaccine had 24% fewer influenza illnesses as compared to those who received the standard dose flu vaccine. The high dose vaccine has been approved for use in the United States since 2009. Learn more about the high dose flu vaccine here.
