COVID-19 can be a very serious, sometime fatal condition for anyone. Family Health Centers has been working closely with local, state and federal health officials to get testing, vaccines and protective masks to our patients and community members. Our goal throughout the pandemic has been to create a safe environment for our staff and patients to continue providing needed health care and to provide COVID-19 testing and life-saving vaccines to the medically underserved areas of Louisville.

When to Get your COVID-19 Vaccine

The COVID-19 vaccines available are based upon years of research and were tested on thousands of people for safety and effectiveness in reducing the severity of COVID-19 illness. Vaccines are the best defense against COVID-19. Anyone six months and older may receive a COVID-19 vaccine and should receive their vaccine as soon as possible.

On March 25th there will be a COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic at Americana Community Center. Learn more by clicking here!

When to Get Tested

If you have been exposed to COVID-19 or have symptoms of COVID-19, you should get a COVID-19 test.

When to Seek Care

COVID-19 can be a serious condition for many people, especially older individuals or people with certain conditions such as obesity, heart disease, COPD and diabetes. If you have been recently exposed to COVID-19 and are concerned, stay at home and wear a mask in public. If you develop symptoms of COVID-19, you should get a COVID-19 test and follow current quarantine guidelines. If you feel very ill and feel like you need medical care and advice, please call Family Health Centers at (502) 774-8631.
