Testing for Travel

If traveling, how soon should I take my test before I leave?

Requirements vary, so be sure to check with your destination to make sure you’re tested at the right time before departing. Getting tested too early or too late, or getting the wrong type of test, may result in needing to self-quarantine at your destination.

Appointment and Scheduling

No Scheduling is necessary, you can drive to the site once you have completed ordering online and made the payment.

Cost and Payment

All testing needs payment prior to testing. This testing may or may not be covered by your Insurance, please check with your Insurance carrier if you have any questions. Vibrant America does not provide a Superbill.

Taking the test

Can I bring someone with me or should I come alone?

We understand that you may need to bring someone with you; however, only patients who have qualified and scheduled a visit online can be tested.

How old can a patient be to get a COVID-19 test?

Patients must be 3 years of age or older for COVID-19 testing. A parent or legal guardian must complete registration for all minor patients. Patients 3-15 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, who may need to assist with sample collection using the swab.

How is my sample for testing collected?

You will be given a swab and asked to collect a sample of nasal secretions. This is done by inserting the swab into your nostril approximately 1 inch into the nasal passage (midway) with the most visible drainage or the nostril that is most congested if drainage is not present. The swab is rotated several times, removed gently and this process is repeated on the other side. Please note that you need to administer your own swab or bring someone that can do it for you.

What do I need to bring with me?

Proof of identity and bring the confirmation code that you receive in your confirmation email message. Be sure to have your mobile phone in case we need to reach you.
