During every stage of the COVID-19 pandemic, St. Peter’s Health is committed to caring for our community. We want you to know that we’re here for you and prepared to safely care for ALL patients.
The health and well-being of our patients, 1,700 caregivers and the community will always be our top priority. We ask that you get vaccinated and continue to take everyday precautions to help keep our community safe.
Here are some other important things to know:
- There is no appointment needed for COVID-19 vaccination at St. Peter's: Walk-in COVID-19 vaccines are now available to anyone 12 years and older. Walk-in hours and vaccine clinic information can be found here. More COVID-19 vaccine information can be found here.
- Even if you have been vaccinated, anyone who thinks they have COVID-19 or is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms should:
- Stay home* and:
- Call your medical provider to receive an electronic COVID-19 test order that will allow you to use the St. Peter's drive-up testing site.
- If you want to be seen by a medical provider, call your provider or visit one of our Urgent Care clinics for a walk-in appointment. Our providers will determine if a COVID-19 test is appropriate
- *If symptoms are life-threatening call 9-1-1 or visit the Emergency Department immediately. Our Emergency Department is open 24/7 for emergency medical needs.
- Stay home* and:
- Testing information, including other community testing site details, can be found here.
- Service and visitor information: When you come to our clinics and facilities, here's what to expect:
- Some visitor restrictions remain in place at all our facilities. Children under the age of 12 are not allowed to visit (exceptions may include end of life care). Find the most update visitor restriction details here.
