Drive-Thru Flu Vaccination & COVID-19 Testing for Quad-County Residents

CCHHS is continuing to offer COVID-19 testing for Quad-County Residents ONLY. Those from other counties will be turned away. For the flu vaccine, CCHHS is contracted to bill most insurances. For uninsured we ask for a $20 administration fee; however, no one will be turned away for the inability to pay. CCHHS is not contracted with Tricare or labor unions. Testing is free of charge; first come, first served, no appointments or reservations.
