VA’s new automated Annie COVID-19 symptom monitoring protocol is an automagical way to help you determine if you should see a doctor, based on any symptoms you’re currently experiencing. It’s super easy to get started, she’ll check in with you daily, and you can chat back and forth with Annie through phone text messaging.
To get started, first sign up for Annie if you haven’t already. You can do that by going to the Annie registration page, reviewing the “consent to participate in the program” link at the top, and then marking the check box after you’ve read the consent message, then filling out your information and your local VA facility that you’re enrolled in. Click “submit” when you’re done.
To enroll in Annie’s COVID-19 symptom monitoring protocol, using your phone’s text messaging app (make sure you’ve enrolled with Annie first–see the previous paragraph if you have not), text SUB COVID to 75338.
Follow the instructions and that’s it–you’re all set! Annie will check in with you daily to see how you’re feeling, and if you start experiencing symptoms, she’ll help you determine what to do next.
