Outer Cape Health Services continues to offer Covid-19 vaccination appointments.
We now offer the Pfizer vaccine for children 12+ and adults in addition to the Moderna and Johnson and Johnson brand vaccines.
To request/schedule a vaccination at one of our three health centers, call 508-905-2888.
The CDC is recommending that moderately to severely immunocompromised people receive a third dose of an mRNA COVID-10 vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) after their initial 2 doses. A third dose cannot be administered until 28 days after an individual receives their second dose of Pfizer or Moderna. Johnson and Johnson vaccinations are not authorized for a second or third dose. Outer Cape Health Services is awaiting further guidance and clearance from the Massachusetts Department of Health before scheduling third doses for eligible individuals.
Must first download and complete a Patient Registration Form and drop off at one of the OCHS health centers, or FAX to OCHS at: 508-240-1244. Upon receiving the form, an OCHS representative will contact you to schedule an appointment, contingent upon vaccine availability.

To receive a Covid test at Outer Cape Health Services, call 508-905-2888.
Antigen tests are free via a Massachusetts Department of Public Health initiative providing OCHS with Abbott BinaxNOW™ rapid tests for COVID-19. Tests may be billed to individuals with insurance but not charged a co-pay; however, no one will be turned away. Insurances will be charged for the costs of administering your vaccination but not the actual vaccine which is free.
For individuals seeking a PCR (Polymerase chain reaction) molecular test, fees will apply for this test type. These tests samples will be processed by Quest Diagnostic Laboratories and billed directly to patient.
Outer Cape Health Services will also continue to provide symptomatic tests at all three sites and bill insurance. If an individual is exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 or has been referred to testing related to contact tracing, the individual should call OCHS first for a telehealth screening visit.
The procedure and protocol for SYMPTOMATIC COVID-19 testing at Outer Cape Health Services are as follows:

Fever or chills
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Muscle or body aches
