Please note, this is a free service provided by the California Department of Public Health to support uninsured and underinsured individuals within the State of California who cannot connect with a healthcare provider within 24 hours of receiving a positive test result or developing symptoms and having history consistent with a COVID-19 diagnosis, such as close contact with a person confirmed positive. If you are insured, please try to reach your healthcare provider first. If you have difficulty doing so within 24 hours of your positive result or symptoms starting, you may proceed with booking here. COVID-19 medications must be taken within 5-7 days of symptoms starting to be effective.
Only make an appointment if you have a positive COVID-19 test or have symptoms and history consistent with a COVID-19 diagnosis.
COVID-19 medications are only approved for those who have symptoms. If you need to get a COVID-19 test, visit https://covid19.ca.gov/get-tested/
