As of May 12, 2021, the CDC has changed its previous guidelines to allow individuals to get other vaccines at the same time as the COVID-19 vaccine, so there is no longer a two-week waiting period before the first dose and after the second dose.
Quick-turnaround COVID testing has been added as part of Monongalia County Health Department Clinical Services' International Travel Clinic. In addition to getting testing with a fast result for those who need it for a trip, patients also can get vaccines that would be recommended depending on their destination as well as education and counseling pertinent to that locale. Vaccines usually need to be administered in advance and sometimes require more than one dose; the testing can be done just before departure. Call 304-598-5119 for an appointment.
Home COVID test kits can be picked up at the front entrance on the upper level at Monongalia County Health Department. Click here to see a video demonstrating how to use different home COVID test kits.
