GREENSBORO, N.C. — COVID-19 testing is in high demand right now as more people leave their home offices and go back to work in person. With student-athletes testing for the virus weekly following COVID protocols and events requiring negative tests or proof of vaccination to get into events, appointments to get a COVID test or a vaccine are being booked several days out.
You skip the line, get a COVID test or vaccine, plus put some money in your pocket on Saturday, September 18.
Oak Grove AME Zion in Greensboro is giving you a $10 gift card when you get a COVID test or a $100 gift card when you get your first dose of a COVID vaccine. The church has enough gift cards for 1,000 people and you don't need an appointment, your ID, or insurance to get it. North Carolina-based Ottendorf Laboratories, LLC is providing the testing and vaccines.
The NCDHHS COVID Dashboard shows 52% of the state's total eligible population is fully vaccinated. 56% have had at least one dose of a vaccine.
You can stop by the church located at 300 Lawrence Street in Greensboro Saturday, September 18 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Come early because the gift cards are only available while supplies last.
