CHARLOTTE – StarMed Healthcare is partnering with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools and the Mecklenburg County Health Department to offer COVID-19 vaccinations and testing at five CMS school locations for anyone ages 5 and older. Patients at each CMS location can receive the Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. Vaccinations are proven to be safe and effective. The vaccinations are provided at no cost to the individual, with or without insurance.

Patients also can be tested for the COVID-19 virus at each of the CMS locations. There is no cost for the test. No referrals are necessary and walk-up patients are welcome. A StarMed medical staff member will gently collect a nasal swab sample. Patients can get instant results with a rapid test, or a PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test that will provide a patient’s results in a day or so, by email and text message.
