Effective July 1, the hours of operation at South Peninsula Hospital’s Covid-19 Test and Vaccine Clinic at 4201 Bartlett Street will be 9am-5pm, Monday through Friday, and closed on weekends. PCR Covid-19 testing will be offered at the walk-up clinic, no appointment necessary, Monday through Friday from 9am-5pm. Insurance will be billed for testing. Those uninsured or not using insurance will be charged $50, and can pay at time of service or be billed. Test results will be provided on South Peninsula Hospital’s electronic health portal, and are normally available within 24 hours.
Testing is recommended for individuals experiencing covid-like symptoms, for those with known exposure to an individual who tested positive for Covid-19, for travel requirements, with a provider referral and in advance of medical appointments. In addition to the PCR testing offered at the hospital’s walk-up clinic, free home-test kits are available at the hospital’s main entrance 24/7, at the Homer Chamber of Commerce, and for purchase at numerous local retailers.
Covid-19 vaccinations will be offered on Thursdays and Fridays by appointment only, made here. Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines are available at this location for individuals ages five and over, and boosters are offered to eligible groups as recommended by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and as made available by FDA under emergency use authorizations.
In addition to the stand-alone clinic on Bartlett Street, both Covid-19 testing and vaccinations (including those for 6 months and older) are offered by appointment at Homer Medical Center and the hospital’s Family Care Clinic.
