Laurel Health to Host COVID-19 Rapid Test Event in Elkland September 15

 

By Kristy Warren

 

The Laurel Health Centers will host a community COVID-19 rapid test event next Thursday, September 15 from 9 am – 11 am in the Elkland Laurel Health Center parking lot, located at 103 Forestview Drive in Elkland, PA. All are welcome to attend. 

 

You do not have to be an LHC patient to attend the event, but pre-registration is encouraged. To register, call 814-258-5117 or 1-833-LAURELHC (1-833-528-7354) and select an LHC location from the menu. Any of our seven LHC locations can schedule patients for our mobile testing events.

 

You may also request a test at the location of your choice at any time. When requesting an individual testing appointment at our locations, you will receive a telemedicine visit with an LHC provider prior to testing 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 eligiblebe 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. Everyone aged six months and up is now eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

 

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 the pediatric Pfizer vaccine for those aged six months – 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.
