Update: COVID-19 Vaccines

Updated 02/22: The COVID19 vaccination program is being managed by the Federal Government in which Burke Primary Care is participating in the program, as soon as doctors' offices are allocated vaccines. Currently, Burke County Health Department is managing Phases 1 and 2. Due to limited supply, Burke Primary Care is encouraging everyone to get the vaccine where they can. In a few weeks, the State of NC will update doctors' offices on when they are progressing to the next phase of vaccination. Please check back for vaccine updates or check our Facebook page

FAQ

Commonly asked questions from Burke Primary Care providers

I am not a patient, can I get a COVID-19 test at Burke Primary Care? 

Unfortunately no, we are not able to offer COVID-19 testing to non-patients at Burke Primary Care. We recommend calling your doctor and asking where you should go.

I think I have COVID-19 symptoms, but I also have allergies. What should I do?

Please refer to the CDC's listing on symptoms here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html. If you think you might have COVID-19, call your primary care provider for guidance. 

I have the antibodies. Am I safe from getting COVID-19 again? 

Since COVID-19 is relatively new, this is still an unknown. There have been cases of patients getting COVID-19 more than once. We recommend practicing all the safety precautions listed above and assuming it is possible to get it again. 

My family member has COVID-19, and we live in the same house. What do I do?

Try to designate an area for that family member and practice social distancing. It is possible for one household member to get COVID-19 and not infect others. Keep an eye out for symptoms and call your primary care provider if you start to develop any possible signs.
