  • Cole County Health Department (CCHD) now offers rapid COVID-19 antibody testing by appointment only. Please walk in or call to schedule. An individual can receive one free COVID-19 antibody test every 90 days. If testing more frequently than 90 days, the COVID-19 antibody test is $20. A capillary blood specimen is collected by finger poke, and results are available in 15 minutes. This test does not test for a current COVID-19 infection, but rather tests for one indicator of the presence of an immune response after COVID-19 infection and/or vaccine.

    CCHD will continue offering Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine on Thursday 9-16-21 and 9-23-21 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. Due to the increasing demand of seasonal influenza vaccination clinics across the county and at CCHD, 9-23-21 will be the last day COVID-19 vaccine is offered at CCHD. COVID-19 vaccine can be found at many locations across the county including pharmacies and healthcare settings. We expect that this service will resume after the month of October. Watch and our Facebook page for updates.  

    CCHD strives to serve the community well. We apologize when services are unavailable or limited, and we appreciate your patience. Please call with questions regarding clinic hours or the availability of services.
