Therefore, clinic service hours at the Health Department may be limited during the month of October. The Health Department will NOT be giving COVID-19 vaccines during the month of October. Please call (573) 636-2181 if you have any questions about service availability. Thank you for your support and patience during this busy time.
Cole County Health Department (CCHD) 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.
