All of our locations offer U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-certified preventive care and treatment for COVID-19. From medication to information and support, we are doing everything to build your immunity against COVID-19 and reduce the chance of you passing it on.
Whether you’ve had COVID-19 or not, getting vaccinated is the most effective way to stop the spread and boost your immunity. The new COVID-19 vaccine is currently unavailable at our sites.
Because COVID-19 vaccines become less effective after a period of time, boosters are the best way to keep your immunity strong. If you’re six months or older, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend getting a booster after completing your primary COVID-19 vaccination series.
COVID -19 testing
Depending on your needs and time frame, there are different tests to choose from. We’ll help you figure out which test is the best choice for you.
If you want to know if you currently have COVID-19:
Diagnostic tests can show if you are currently infected with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. There are two types of COVID-19 diagnostic tests:
- Molecular tests (such as polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests): Highly-accurate tests that detect the genetic material or nucleic acid present inside a virus particle. These tests take about three to seven days to get results.
- Antigen tests (aka rapid tests): Same-day tests that detect one or more specific proteins from a virus particle. These tests are less sensitive and slightly less accurate.
If you want to know if you have been exposed to COVID-19 in the past:
Antibody tests look for antibodies in your blood that your immune system produced in response to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Antibody tests should not be used to diagnose a current infection and, at this time, should also not be used to check for immunity. Samples for antibody tests are typically collected by a doctor or other medical professional by taking blood from a finger stick or your vein.
