COVID-19 Testing at the Pharmacy

We are now offering FREE COVID testing right at the pharmacy!

**Testing available Monday-Friday 11AM-4PM

**Patient form available below, if able please print and bring with you!

We are using the Abbot Binax Now COVID-19 Antigen test.  This is a rapid Point of Care test that gives results in 15 minutes or less. 


The test consists of a simple nasal swab.  Some people find it to be slightly uncomfortable but it is generally not painful.  Once you have completed the swab your results will be available in 15 minutes.  

COVID tests are available walk-in, no appointment required.  If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID we ask that you remain outside the store and call when you arrive.  We will perform the test from your vehicle or on the sidewalk.


Upon completion of the test you will receive a statement declaring you negative or positive - this can be used for workplaces and school. 


If you are planning on traveling and need a test for travel please check with the airline or travel agency first - some require specific types of tests.  Ask them if they accept results from the Abbott Binax NOW COVID Antigen Test.  


Please be sure to bring your insurance card.  You will not be charged a fee for the test but we do attempt to bill your insurance for the test.  If you do not have insurance that is okay - tests for the uninsured will be paid for by the Federal Government.
