COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Vaccines are working and are our best defense against COVID-19. Protection from your initial shots may decrease over time. Booster shots are available and are an easy way to keep your protection going strong. For more information about COVID-19 vaccines contact your physician or local pharmacist.

At this time Excela Health is not administering any version of the COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccination is very important to prevent the spread of infections and is readily available at many retail pharmacy locations. Click here to find a retail pharmacy offering the vaccine.

COVID-19 Testing Information

If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, please contact your PCP office to discuss testing.
