What is COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a disease caused by the virus, SARs-COV-2 or coronavirus.

 

While symptoms vary greatly between each individual some common symptoms are: sore throat, cough, fever, chest pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle aches, new headaches, congestion, nausea or vomiting, and/or diarrhea.

 

The only symptom that is unique to COVID-19 is loss of sense and/or taste.

Vaccine Information

We understand that many people have concerns with any new product, including vaccines. As your local, trusted pharmacists, we would love to address any questions you have. Below will direct you to the CDC site regarding COVID-19 vaccines. However, if you have more specific questions, please reach out to us.

COVID-19 PCR Test

We use the CareSmart Antigen test. This test uses a sample collected with a nasal swab to identify any active infection of COVID-19. This can not detect previous infections.

 

Upon arrival, our staff will be ready in their PPE to collect the sample. Once the sample is collected we ask that you head home. We will email the results and an invoice to you by the end of the day. You may submit the invoice to your health insurance to attempt reimbursement.

 

Use our online platform to schedule a COVID-19 test appointment and pay.

Vaccine Scheduling

We are waiting to receive shipments of the vaccine. We will contact our patients once we receive any shipments.
