The LECOM Institute for Successful Aging and the Erie County Department of Health have partnered to establish a COVID-19 test-to-treat site at the LECOM Center for Health and Aging building, 3910 Schaper Avenue in Erie.

The LECOM Center for Health and Aging will serve as a test-to-treat location for individuals needing COVID-19 testing and therapeautics, and provide faster, easier access to lifesaving COVID-19 treatments. Upon testing positive, the medical team (consisting of physicians and  pharmacists) will assess each individual’s eligibility for COVID-19 therapeutics and prescribe as appropriate.

Testing is available at the site daily via drive thru on the schedule below.  No appointments are necessary, and there is no cost for testing or treatments as the site is being funded by a state grant through the Pennsylvania Department of Health.

Available oral therapeutics include Paxlovid (regular and renal dosing) and Molnupiravir.
