Now Offering Rapid COVID-19 Testing
UNC Urgent Care now has COVID-19 diagnostic testing available, including rapid testing. Testing requires a provider evaluation and generally is appropriate for individuals who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. Our providers will determine if COVID testing is right for you. The COVID-19 diagnostic tests check for a current infection by detecting the genetic material of the virus in respiratory secretions. Separate billing applies.
If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms you can visit one of our Wake County UNC Urgent Care locations.
*At this time, UNC Urgent Care does not offer COVID-19 antibody testing (which indicates whether the patient has been infected in the past).*
UNC Health Urgent Care locations are *not* offering vaccinations at this time.
Currently the following groups are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine:
- Health care workers with in-person patient contact
- Long-term care staff and residents
- Anyone 65 years or older, regardless of health status or living situation
- An employee of a child care or pre-K to grade 12 school
If you are currently eligible, you must schedule an appointment to receive a vaccine using online scheduling. More information is available on www.yourshot.org, or by calling (984) 215-5485.
