When to Make an Appointment

Please note Southcoast Heath offers PCR tests, which are ideally suited for asymptomatic patients needing results for travel, return to work or school, and/or surgeries requiring admission. Symptomatic patients are encouraged to use at-home antigen tests when possible.

At home COVID-19 tests are available at pharmacy locations and at covid.gov/tests.

As a reminder, Southcoast pre-surgical patients who are not being admitted post-surgery DO NOT require PCR testing and should perform a home test as directed by their provider.   

Pre-surgery patients who will be admitted to the hospital post-surgery should be scheduled for PCR testing 48-72 hours prior to the surgery.

To schedule, log in to MyChart – once you are logged in, scroll down to the COVID-19 Testing button to book an appointment.

Southcoast reminds you that ALL results are available in your Southcoast Health MyChart app as soon as they have resulted. We will contact you directly should there be a need to discuss your results further. Given high call volumes and hold times, please refrain from calling our COVID-19 hotline or call center to ask about your test results.    

Employees requiring testing by Southcoast should check the Southcoast intranet for hours of operation.

Booster Information

Please click here to view the latest CDC booster shot recommendations.

Southcoast Health is now providing the Bivalent COVID-19 booster for eligible individuals

As of September 1, the bivalent COVID-19 boosters from Pfizer and Moderna were authorized by the FDA and recommended by the CDC. The new boosters are now available in Massachusetts and at Southcoast Health. These vaccines provide better protection against the Omicron variant.

The bivalent COVID-19 boosters are updated versions of the original vaccines. You do not need to receive an updated booster from the same manufacturer as your original COVID-19 vaccine or most recent booster.

  • Anyone age 12 and up who has received a booster dose, or completed a vaccine series more than 2 months ago is encouraged to receive a bivalent booster vaccine.
  • There are different recommendations for COVID-19 vaccines, including boosters for those who are moderately or severely immunocompromised.  

According to the FDA, a single booster dose with an updated bivalent COVID-19 vaccine will provide broad protection against COVID-19 and better protection against illness caused by the Omicron variant. 

If you are interested in receiving a booster, you can book an appointment for a free vaccine shot through MyChart or through our online COVID-19 vaccine-scheduling portal above.

Mix-and-match Vaccines

There are now booster recommendations for all three available COVID-19 vaccines in the United States. Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received and others, may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.

Mass COVID-19 Vaccination Locations


A legally authorized representative (usually a parent or guardian) must give permission (also called consent) for vaccination for someone under the age of 18, such as by completing a written consent form that the minor (the person under the age of 18) can bring to their vaccination appointment. We require all individuals under 18, unaccompanied by a parent or guardian, to download a copy of the consent form, have it signed, and show proof upon vaccination appointment. 

The parent or guardian does not need to go with the minor to their vaccination appointment to give consent.


COVID-19 Vaccination Updates, Guides & Resources

Pregnancy & Breastfeeding

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is recommending COVID-19 vaccination for people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to get pregnant now, or might become pregnant in the future. More information is available on CDC.gov: COVID-19 Vaccines While Pregnant or Breastfeeding.

Thank you for your trust, patience, and support, and please stay tuned to this page for updates. A few final reminders:

  • While awaiting COVID-19 vaccination, and even after being vaccinated, please stay safe by wearing a mask whenever you’re in a public area, staying at least 6 feet away from people with whom you do not live, washing and sanitizing your hands regularly, and refraining from touching your eyes, nose and mouth as much as possible.
  • Even after being vaccinated, we urge patients to continue wearing a face covering or mask. We are encouraging everyone to wear a mask in public and to contribute to a shared national effort of saving every possible life. When you protect yourself and your loved ones, you are also protecting our frontline healthcare heroes.
  • The vaccine is free of charge for recipients, but if you have health insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid, please be prepared to share that information during the scheduling and appointment process.
