Laurel Health to Host COVID-19 Rapid Test Events June 9 & 23

 

By Kristy Warren

 

The Laurel Health Centers will hold two public COVID-19 rapid test events in June using their mobile testing unit. These outreach events will be held in Osceola and Troy, PA on:

 

  • Thursday, June 9 from 9 am – 11 am in the large parking lot at address 7788 on Rt. 49, near the Big M Supermarket in Osceola, PA


  • Thursday, June 23 from 9 am – 11 am in the Troy Fellowship Bible Church parking lot, located at 121 Mud Creek Rd. in Troy, PA

 

You do not have to be an LHC patient to attend these events but pre-registration is required. To register, call your local Laurel Health Center or 1-833-LAURELHC (1-833-528-7354) and select an LHC location from the menu. To help manage call volumes, any of the seven Laurel Health Center locations can schedule you for public mobile testing events. 

 

You may also request a test at the Laurel Health location of your choice at any time. When requesting an individual testing appointment at our locations, you will first receive a telemedicine visit with an LHC provider so the provider can accurately evaluate your symptoms / exposure and determine which type of test should be ordered (e.g., point-of-care rapid test or PCR swab) as well as when it should be conducted.

 

COVID-19 is still spreading throughout the region. The best way to reduce your likelihood of severe illness is to get a COVID-19 vaccine. Laurel Health's medical professionals strongly advise that everyone 5 and up be vaccinated against COVID-19 to protect themselves, their loved ones, and their community against severe illness, hospitalization, and death. The vaccines are safe, effective, and no cost to you.

 

COVID-19 VACCINES ARE AVAILABLE AT ALL LHC LOCATIONS

 

COVID-19 vaccines are available at Laurel Pediatrics and all Laurel Health Center locations throughout Tioga and Bradford Counties, including booster shots and pediatric vaccine. 

 

Laurel Health provides Pfizer and Moderna vaccine for those 18 and up, the Pfizer vaccine dosage approved for those aged 12 – 17, and pediatric Pfizer vaccine for those aged 5 – 11. Patients who received their Pfizer or Moderna vaccine series more than six months ago or their J&J shot more than two months ago are advised to receive a COVID-19 booster shot to bolster and extend vaccine protection.
