COVID-19 Testing in Lynn

At LCHC, self-test kits are available for patients to pick up at all LCHC locations. If a symptomatic patient has an appointment, point of care rapid antigen testing will be performed. PCR Tests may be collected at the clinical team’s discretion.

Please note:

  • Being tested with Curative lessens the likelihood of a bill, but we cannot guarantee that there will be no bill.
  • Charges may vary based on insurance status, the state they reside in, and other factors.

Beginning Friday, April 1st, LCHC is no longer be operating as a Stop the Spread (STS) site. As a reminder, the Stop the Spread testing initiative was created by the Baker-Polito Administration in the earliest days of the pandemic, to respond rapidly to the significant surge in COVID-19 positive cases. For almost two years, this program enabled LCHC to provide PCR COVID tests free of charge to all MA residents.

What do I need to bring to get vaccinated?
  • Note: Lack of driver’s license, social security number, or insurance is not a barrier to receiving the vaccine.
  • A government-issued identification or license, employer-issued ID card that includes your name and title
    Health Insurance card
  • To save time when you arrive for your appointment, complete and bring copies of the two (2) forms
  • If you cannot download and print these forms, they will be supplied to you upon arrival!
What do I need to know about vaccinations for under 18 year old’s?

If you are between 5 and 17 years old, please bring a guardian with you. If you are age 16 or 17 and you are unable to bring someone with you, we will accept written permission.

We cannot currently accept patients age 5-15 years old without a guardian present.

What if I need transportation assistance?

If you have insurance through MassHealth, you can get help with transportation to your COVID-19 vaccine appointment, even if you don’t usually receive transportation assistance to regular doctor’s appointments. You qualify if you use one of these services:

  • MassHealth Limited, MassHealth Family Assistance, the Children’s Medical Health Safety Net.
  • Members with MassHealth Standard, CommonHealth and CarePlus can also get transportation to vaccine appointments, as well as other medical appointments, through MassHealth.
  • Those enrolled in a Senior Care Option or OneCare plan, or PACE, should continue to use the transportation services offered by their managed care provider.
  • Please call 1-800-841-2900 to schedule your transportation to your vaccine appointment.
  • If you normally get help with transportation to doctor’s appointments, the most common and fastest way to get approval is to contact your health care provider and have them submit a transportation request for you.

July 22, 2021 was our last day at the Lynn Tech Vaccine Site!

THANK YOU to all our staff and incredible volunteers who made this happen for the last 7 months. We gave over 70,200 shots of Moderna, Pfizer, AND the J&J vaccines at this location alone, which doesn’t include LCHC’s main site or mobile clinics, or City Hall! Words can’t express how proud we were to run this special program in partnership with the City of Lynn and MGB Salem.

COVID-19 Treatment (“Therapeutics”) in Lynn

We continue to offer oral medications for COVID-19, as detailed in prior staff e-mails.  Treatment with monoclonal antibody is also available locally in Everett.  This treatment is an IV infusion that can be given to those with COVID-19 who are at high risk of developing severe symptoms, within 7 days of onset (remember, the oral therapy is from 5 days of onset).

A link to local pharmacies that carry oral medication and/or monoclonal antibody is here: https://www.mass.gov/info-details/information-for-providers-about-therapeutic-treatments-for-covid-19#covid-19-therapeutic-locator-

Besides LCHC, there are now four facilities (3 CVS pharmacies and Walmart) in Lynn currently with oral therapeutics.
