The UAB Hospital-Highlands drive-through COVID-19 testing site will close on Friday, July 2, and it will be replaced by a new drive-through location set to open July 6 in The Kirklin Clinic of UAB Hospital parking deck. Testing is open to the public but will be done by appointment only, and it will only be provided to people experiencing possible COVID-19 symptoms. The new location’s hours will be Monday-Friday from 7 am to 9:45 am.

People experiencing possible COVID-19 symptoms should call 205-975-1881. Those who meet the screening criteria will be given a testing appointment.

UAB Medicine’s drive-through COVID-19 testing operations began on March 23, 2020, at the old Southern Research Institute property downtown, and it moved to the UAB Hospital-Highlands parking deck in August 2020. We’ve performed more than 400,000 COVID-19 tests since the pandemic began.
