UPMC Urgent Care: Caring for You During and After COVID-19

UPMC Urgent Care offers COVID-19 testing, vaccines, and the bivalent booster.

We are committed to providing safe in-person care. Masking is required. You can walk right in - no appointment is needed. Or, you can schedule an appointment online at some Urgent Care locations.


Now You Can Schedule an Appointment Online at Urgent Care at most locations** or walk-in for service.

  • Scheduled appointments mean reduced or no wait time
  • Schedule an appointment for COVID-19 testing, vaccinations, sports or work physicals, or a visit for a minor injury or illness.
  • Walk-ins are accepted
  • To schedule an appointment, visit UPMC.com/ScheduleUrgentCare

**Scheduling an appointment online is not available at Urgent Care locations in Erie, Central PA, and Western Maryland.


COVID-19 Vaccines and the Bivalent Booster

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently authorized Omicron-specific boosters. The boosters, called "bivalent," are important to make sure you are protected against both the COVID-19 virus and the Omicron variant. The previous vaccine — or natural immunity from infection — provides only partial protection.

Scheduling for a Bivalent Booster at UPMC Urgent Care

You can schedule an appointment online at some UPMC Urgent Care locations in southwestern Pennsylvania for a COVID-19 vaccine or the bivalent booster.

Please note that UPMC Urgent Care locations in Erie, central Pennsylvania, and Maryland do not offer online scheduling and may not offer the bivalent booster. When scheduling for a vaccine or booster, please contact the office and confirm availability.


COVID-19 Testing at UPMC Urgent Care

UPMC Urgent Care will honor any prescription for symptomatic patients (individuals with COVID-19 symptoms), asymptomatic patients, and pre-procedural prescriptions from a UPMC provider.

If you already have an order (medical referral) for a COVID-19 test, and scheduled an appointment online, UPMC Urgent Care staff can administer a COVID-19 test while you are in your vehicle or safely inside the office.

COVID-19 test without a written referral or written order

If you already have an order (medical referral) for a COVID-19 test, you can schedule an appointment online to participate in our car-side testing program.

Patients do not have to have a provider visit. If they do not have an order, one of our staff are able to order the test for the patient. Medical evaluations are provided for ‘walk-in’ patients during regular business hours, first come-first served.

Contact UPMC Urgent Care staff for more information about COVID-19 tests.

  • We use hospital-grade disinfectants to extensively clean all of our facilities. We are especially focused on sanitizing high-touch areas like countertops and doorknobs.
