COVID-19 continues to be a part of our lives. We continue to mask, vaccinate, and socially distance in order to keep ourselves and others safe. One of the most important elements of COVID safety protocol is testing, which should be done whenever you fear you may have been exposed.
At Care Pharmacy, we believe that COVID-19 tests should be accessible and available to everyone. That’s why we’re proud to provide walk-in COVID testings to those who need them. These tests can be done in the safety and convenience of your home, or here at our facility.
If you’re in need of quick, compassionate same-day COVID testing near you, it’s time to get started with Care Pharmacy.
You may not realize that there are actually several types of COVID test available. At Care Pharmacy we provide PCR COVID testing.A PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test is a more involved form of COVID test that can detect smaller amounts of the virus. This test requires a saliva sample.
There are other types of COVID testing, and they have their own benefits; the antigen test is quicker and effective for those whose viral load is high, but the PCR test may be more effective in detecting asymptomatic COVID. Don’t hesitate to discuss with your pharmacist which option might be right for you.
Studies show that the full effects of a COVID-19 booster vaccine will be active within two weeks of receiving the vaccine.
Many patients wonder which vaccine is better for them or their senior loved one. However, research shows that all of the COVID-19 vaccines currently available are safe for use by older adults, and seniors who received the vaccine are significantly safer than those who may contract COVID-19 while unvaccinated.
While booster doses of the COVID-19 vaccine are not currently required, receiving a booster can offer you an extra level of protection from contracting the virus. Even if you do become sick with a breakthrough case of COVID, those who have been vaccinated three times tend to experience fewer effects and are sick for a shorter amount of time than those who have not.
