To help best serve you and all of our patients, please follow this precaution:

  • If a patient needs a caregiver present for their in-person visit, please limit it to one person. In some cases, we may ask the caregiver to wait outside or in their car during the appointment.
  • Do not go to the emergency department unless you are experiencing symptoms that are severe or life-threatening. Most people who are experiencing coronavirus symptoms do not need to go to the emergency department.

All individuals age 2 and older entering our health centers will be asked to wear a face covering.  Learn more about options for face coverings here.

COVID TESTING AND VACCINES *NEW January 11, 2022*

COVID testing is for patients with symptoms only and by appointment only. Due to the demand, testing results are taking 3 to 5 days. If you do get tested, please stay home until you get your test results. You may receive your results via text or through a patient portal message. We are doing our best to get results to you in a timely manner.

Everyone aged 5 and older should get vaccinated, and get boosters when appropriate. Combined with masking and hand washing, vaccination is the best protection against severe complications from COVID-19. We want to provide this access for you. Visit www.westsidehealth.org/covidvaccines for current walk-in vaccine clinic hours.

We have limited staff and high traffic during vaccine clinics. For your safety, please avoid coming to the health centers at these times for non-vaccine related needs. You can use the Patient Portal for questions about lab results, medical records, or prescription refills.

 

COVID-19 Vaccine and Mask Exemptions

Westside will provide a medical exemption letter for COVID-19 vaccines for the reasons listed by the CDC. These reasons include allergies to the vaccine or to parts of the vaccine.

Westside cannot provide letters regarding religious exemptions for COVID-19 vaccines. Talk to your religious leader for this request.

Westside will not provide mask exemption letters for schools or workplaces. Talk with your provider if you have concerns about masking.

 

 

Extra Safety Measures 

We are taking extra safety measures to make sure our locations are safe for your visit.

We are here to help, and we remain open to care for our patients.  Please see our FAQs for more information.
