26Health COVID-19 Testing in Orlando and Vaccination Events

by 26Health Staff

COVID-19 testing in Orlando and vaccinations are a part of our new normal. It’s become our personal responsibility to know if we are carriers of COVID, even if we aren’t presenting any symptoms. And that is why accessible testing—and vaccinations—are paramount. 

26Health wants to make knowing your COVID-19 status simple. And we want to help protect you against possible infection too. That’s why we’ve hosted seven events over the last 18 months in an effort to safeguard our community. If you’re searching for “COVID testing site near me,”  then we’re here for you.

Helping Orlando Get Tested and Vaccinated for COVID-19

On August 27, we teamed up with Val Demings, U.S. Representative from Florida’s 10th congressional district since 2017, to host a COVID-19 vaccine clinic. Demings has dedicated her life to public service, starting as a member of the Orlando Police Department and later rising to her current elected position in Congress. 

The event was a partnership between the Florida Department of Health in Orange County, 26Health, and Tildenville Missionary Baptist Church, where the event was held. In addition to COVID-19 testing and vaccination, 26Health offered free, on-the-spot testing for HIV, Hepatitis C, syphilis, diabetes, and cholesterol.

Confidentiality and Peace of Mind Are Priorities

At these free COVID testing events near you, a mobile unit is utilized to offer safe and private accommodations. We don’t think you should ever have to pass up an opportunity that can benefit your health because of intimidation or embarrassment. We always try to be mindful about how you feel healthwise, but also about how you’re feeling on an emotional level too. When we conduct any STD testing it’s behind closed doors, since your privacy is our priority.

Speaking of priorities: we don’t want our community to overlook their overall well-being, which is why we’re making these COVID-19 testing events in Orlando inclusive of other testing services, for critical health metrics like your cholesterol and blood sugar. If your numbers are high or questionable, we can help you make an appointment for follow-up care that you can afford.

If you can’t make it to a mobile testing event near you, then drop in or make an appointment for our clinic—we’re providing all of these services here too.
