How Do I Make Appointments for My Employees?
Agencies must use Mobile Health’s portal to make appointments. Walk-ins are not allowed. When making appointments, please log into the Mobile Health portal and follow these instructions:
Select the “Midwood-COVID” branch. This is the only location where a vaccine appointment can be scheduled.
When scheduling, use the procedure code CVD/V or procedure name “COVID-19 Vaccination.” This is the only procedure that can be scheduled at the Midwood-COVID location.
IMPORTANT: Please include both email address and mobile phone number of each home care worker when scheduling. This will allow each home care worker to receive an email and text the morning of their appointment with information.
I Am Not A Mobile Health Client or Do Not Have a Login for the Mobile Health Portal. What Do I Do?
This program is available for all home care workers and agencies. If you are not a current Mobile Health client and do not have access to our scheduling portal, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be set up.
What is The Cost to Agencies?
There is no cost to agencies. Please have your employees bring their insurance card.
Are There Individuals Who Should Not be Scheduled?
The COVID-19 vaccine should not be given within 14 days of the employee receiving any other type of vaccine. Home care employees will be screened by Mobile Health clinical team to ensure their medical ability to receive the vaccine.
Will We Receive Proof of Vaccine from Mobile Health?
No, Mobile Health will not send a medical record through the portal with vaccine information. You must request proof of vaccinations directly from your employees.
