If you are having symptoms of COVID-19
Patients or other community members experiencing COVID-19 symptoms can call 205-975-1881 to schedule an appointment at UAB Urgent Care for testing.
Pre-Travel Testing for COVID-19
UAB Medicine Urgent Care offers COVID-19 testing for anyone age 18 and up who needs to be tested before traveling. You cannot be tested if you have COVID-19 symptoms. The cost is $125 (not covered by insurance), and no appointment is needed. Simply stop by UAB Urgent Care during operating hours to be tested. The clinic is located in downtown Birmingham at 125 20th Street South, Suite 103, and it is open Monday-Friday 7 am-7 pm, Saturday 8 am-3 pm, and Sunday 1 pm-5 pm.
The COVID-19 test we use is a PCR/NAAT molecular lab test, which is the most commonly required type. However, you should check with your travel destination about which test type is required.
