Schedule Change for Testing

January 10, 2022 0
New year, new schedule!
Demand for testing is skyrocketing, so 𝗮𝘀 𝗼𝗳 𝗝𝗮𝗻𝘂𝗮𝗿𝘆 𝟭𝟯, 𝘄𝗲 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗰𝗵𝗮𝗻𝗴𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗧𝗵𝘂𝗿𝘀𝗱𝗮𝘆 𝘀𝘂𝗿𝘃𝗲𝗶𝗹𝗹𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲 𝘁𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 (𝘁𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝗽𝗲𝗼𝗽𝗹𝗲 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗻𝗼 𝘀𝘆𝗺𝗽𝘁𝗼𝗺𝘀) 𝘁𝗼 𝟵:𝟬𝟬 𝗮𝗺 𝘁𝗼 𝟭:𝟬𝟬 𝗽𝗺, 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘀𝗮𝗺𝗲 𝗮𝘀 𝗶𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝗼𝗻 𝗪𝗲𝗱𝗻𝗲𝘀𝗱𝗮𝘆. This allows us to ship tests the same day, since the cut off time to get them to FedEx is 2:00 pm.
Tests for people without symptoms are shipped to a laboratory in Valencia, and the earliest the test results may be available is 72 hours after the lab receives them. So we are changing the schedule to make sure we can meet the shipping deadline and so that people can get their results as soon as possible.
If you are having symptoms, please call us at 707 964 1251.
We will be giving drive through vaccines from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm on Tuesday, January 11 at the white tent at 205 South Street in Fort Bragg. First dose, second dose, and boosters are all available. No appointment is necessary.
Boosters are now available for children aged 12 and up, if it has been at least 6 months since their second dose, if they received Moderna or Pfizer, or at least 2 months, if they received Johnson & Johnson. Parental consent is required for anyone under 18 to receive a vaccine.
Please follow all traffic signage and instructions for the vaccine clinic on Tuesday, and please do not come early. This backs up traffic and makes for a longer wait for everyone. Thank you for your understanding.
