Carson City Health and Human Services will be combining drive-thru COVID-19 testing and flu vaccination events for Quad-County residents (Lyon, Storey, Carson City, and Douglas counties). The combined flu vaccination and COVID-19 testing events will begin Oct. 3, 2020 and will occur throughout the month at various locations throughout the Quad-County Region, including at Healthy Communities Coalition’s Yerington Food Pantry, among many other locations (see poster below for all locations).
Residents can choose to receive a flu vaccine and/or a COVID-19 test at each event from the comfort of their vehicle. No appointments or reservations needed. The COVID-19 test is free, no insurance information will be collected for that test only. The test offered by CCHHS detects a current infection with the virus and does not detect previous infections. For the flu vaccine CCHHS bills Medicare, Medicaid, and most private insurances. CCHHS is not a contracted provider for labor unions or Tricare. Please bring a copy of your insurance card with you. For those who are uninsured or underinsured, a $20 admin fee is requested. However, no one will be turned away for their inability to pay.
