Free COVID-19 Vaccines 

NOTE: THE PFIZER VACCINE HAS NOW RECEIVED FULL FDA APPROVAL.

  • We are scheduling COVID-19 vaccinations for the general population ages 12 and up. COVID-19 vaccinations are free with no out-of-pocket cost to you. You must have an appointment to be vaccinated. You do not have to be a Rural Health patient to get vaccinated at Rural Health. We currently have Moderna and Pfizer vaccines.
  • We are now offering free booster doses of the COVID-19 Pfizer and Moderna vaccines to immunocompromised people who received their second COVID shot at least 28 days ago. The vaccinations are at no cost to you. You do not have to be a Rural Health patient or have received your first two COVID shots at Rural Health to get your third shot. If you received your first two shots somewhere other than Rural Health you need to provide proof of vaccination. Appointments are required.
  • UPON APPROVAL FROM THE FDA, CDC AND VA DEPT OF HEALTH, we will offer booster (third) doses of COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine to people in groups authorized by these authorities, in the timeframe specified. We will offer Moderna boosters after the authorities approve this usage and provide information on the timing of third shots.
  • It is anticipated that booster shots will be recommended for people who got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in the coming weeks.

 Check the esrh.org COVID tab and monitor local media for updates. You must call a Rural Health center in advance to schedule a COVID vaccination. Click on center name for phone number: Atlantic – Chincoteague – Eastville – Onley

Free Community COVID-19 Testing 

The rapid test is best if patients have had symptoms for up to 5-7 days.  If you don’t have symptoms, PCR testing is generally a better option. If you have COVID symptoms call your provider to schedule a telemedicine or in car visit. The testing fee is billed to your health insurance with no copay. If you don’t have health insurance, there is no charge. 

Standard (PCR) Testing: 

  • The Eastern Shore Health Department provides free drive through (no appointment needed) community PCR testing at our Onley center on Wednesdays at 1 p.m; and at our Atlantic center on Thursdays at 1 p.m. Community testing is for all community members without symptoms (including Rural Health patients who have not been seen by a Rural Health provider) who would like to be tested for travel, surgery and because they have been exposed to COVID, as well as for those who just want to be tested. No appointments made for this testing.
  • Our Eastville center performs community testing on Mondays and Fridays at 10 a.m. (Appointments are required for this testing.)
  • Rural Health providers will order COVID testing for patients with COVID symptoms who are seen via telemedicine or in car visits. This testing will be performed during the designated testing times at each center. 
  • PCR results typically come back in 48-72 hours – we will contact patients once results are received.

Rapid Testing: 

  • Rapid antigen testing is available to Rural Health patients if ordered by a Rural Health medical provider.
  • Members of the community who want a rapid test (including Rural Health patients who haven’t seen a Rural Health provider) can get tested at CVS or Walgreens. Rapid tests can also be purchased at Walmart.
