Vaccine

Everyone 5 years old or older is now eligible for the FREE COVID-19 vaccine.

COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective at preventing COVID-19 disease, especially severe illness and death. They also reduce the risk of people spreading the virus that causes COVID-19. Vaccines are one of the most important tools to ending the COVID-19 pandemic and getting back to doing what you enjoy. Learn more about the safety and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines.

You may experience side effects after getting a COVID-19 vaccine. These are normal signs that your body is building protection against COVID-19.

COVID vaccines are FREE and available to all, regardless of income, insurance, or immigration status.

COVID Testing Cost

While the federal funding for COVID testing for uninsured patients has ended, LabCorp and Zufall Health are working together to provide affordable testing for all patients.

  • Uninsured patients will receive a bill from LabCorp for $10.00. If an uninsured patient receives a bill for a different amount, they should bring the bill to Zufall Health. We will send the bill to LabCorp for correction.
  • Insured patients will have the bill processed through their insurance company. They may receive a bill from LabCorp for any portion of the charge not covered by insurance.
