COVID-19 Antibody & PCR Testing
During this time, we understand that patients may be unsure whether symptoms they have are just of a cold or stomach bug or if they are indicators of COVID-19, an upper respiratory infection that has spread worldwide. AFC Urgent Care Vernon is able to perform COVID-19 testing to diagnose both active cases as well as past cases that may have occurred before testing was widely available.
PCR testing is performed by taking a gentle swab sample from the upper nasal cavity to detect the presence of the active COVID-19 virus. Results are provided within 3-5 business days.
COVID-19 Rapid Testing is available by appointment only. We offer a 2 step process, the first step is to make an appointment for a telemed video visit by selecting the “Book Covid-19 Telemed” button above and completing the entire registration process. Once you have completed your virtual visit our staff will make an appointment for the rapid test the following day or next available appointment. Results are provided within 20-30 minutes. AFC utilizes the Abbott ID Now system the Gold standard of Rapid Testing.
Antibody testing requires a blood draw to detect the presence of antibodies, an immune response developed 10-14 days after an infection has healed.
