VBCH currently has the Moderna (2-shot series) and J&J (1-shot series) vaccines. You can receive these vaccinations by scheduling an appointment with any of our clinics- call 319-293-8732

COVID TESTING AT VBCH

If someone needs COVID tested due to exposure but does not have symptoms they can schedule a nurse visit rather than being seen by a provider.

If the patient is symptomatic however, an appointment with a provider is scheduled. When the patient arrives for testing they should remain in vehicle upon arrival, call (319-293-8732) to register, and wait until nurse comes out to get them.

Setting up a time for testing can be done by calling 319-293-8732

VBCH HOME TREATMENT PROGRAM

The VBCH COVID-19 Home treatment program provides all of our COVID positive patients with a pulse oximeter to monitor their oxygen and heart rate at home. They will receive a booklet of information regarding COVID and quarantine, exercises to do at home and log to keep track of their readings from the pulse ox. Patients will receive a call the day after they were tested and on Monday’s and Friday’s as needed, more frequently if the patient is high risk. We also have an incentive spirometer to send home with our high risk patients. For more info on the COVID home treatment program call Rhonda or Lynndsey at 319-293-8744
