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.

Booster Information

The FDA has approved and authorized the emergency use updated mRNA COVID-19 vaccines (2023-2024 formula) that include a monovalent (single) component that corresponds to the omicron variant XBB.1.5 or SARS-CoV-2. These vaccines were updated to provide better protection against COVID-19 caused by circulating variants as we transition into fall and head into 2024.

Please visit the CDC for more vaccine information.


Southcoast Health Mobile Clinics


There are no Mobile Clinics scheduled at this time.

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. If you are pregnant or were recently pregnant you are:

  • More likely to get very sick from COVID-19 compared to people who are not pregnant. People who get very sick from COVID-19 may require hospitalization, admission to an intensive care unit (ICU), or use of a ventilator or special equipment to breathe.
  • Getting a COVID-19 vaccine can help protect you and your baby from serious health problems from COVID-19.
  • The CDC recommends you should stay up to date with their COVID-19 vaccines, including getting a COVID-19 booster shot when it’s time to get one.
