Due to decreased case counts and demand, COVID-19 testing is now available for the public outside the QNHCH Emergency Room Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9 am-1 pm. Patients must have a physician’s order unless they are checking in to be seen by an Emergency Department physician.

Vaccinations continue to be available at QNHCH on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with no appointment necessary. Vaccinations are available 7 am – 6 pm at the QNHCH COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic Annex (south side of hospital campus near Emergency Room). There is no cost to patients for the vaccination and insurance is not required.

QNHCH offers both the Pfizer and the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccinations (subject to availability).
The Pfizer vaccination is available to those 12 and older. The single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccination is
available to those 18 and older. Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

Pfizer COVID-19 boosters are also available for the following groups at least six months after their second
Pfizer vaccination: people 65 years and over; residents in long-term care settings; people 18-64 years with
specific underlying conditions or immunocompromised; and adults at high risk of disease from occupational exposures to COVID-19 such as health care workers, teachers and essential workers.
