COVID-19 Services

Vaccines

All Northern Light Mercy Primary Care and Walk-In Care locations offer CV19 vaccinations (Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson) on a walk-in basis. If you have a vaccine preference, it's recommend that you call the office before you arrive to confirm availability. Our pediatric practice in Portland offers the Pfizer vaccine on a walk-in basis, and Northern Light Pharmacy on our Fore River Parkway campus offers vaccinations on a walk-in basis. Please note that you do not need to be a current patient of Northern Light Health to receive a COVID-19 vaccination.

Testing

The success of getting Mainers vaccinated against COVID-19 has led to an overall decrease in demand for testing and has made it possible to move testing services to medical offices and laboratory settings. As a result, the Swab and Go drive through testing site located on our Fore River Parkway campus will close at the end of July. 

Beginning August 1, we will expand our locations (details below) that provide testing for COVID-19. Patients should expect PCR or NAAT test results within 24 to 48 hours of the test being administered.

Symptomatic: We encourage you to contact your primary care provider if you have COVID-19 symptoms. If you do not have a primary care provider, you may access care through our walk-in care practices in Gorham (Daily, 8 am – 8 pm) and Windham (Daily, 10 am – 3 pm). The Westbrook Respiratory Assessment Clinic is also available for daily testing from 8 am – 8 pm.  

Asymptomatic: For patients who are not showing symptoms of COVID-19 or those who need pre-procedure testing, walk-in testing is available at the following locations during the following times:
State of Maine testing (no cost): For patients seeking testing under the State of Maine’s Standing Order:
Northern Light Health employee testing: Employees requiring testing must first complete the employee COVID test form. All employee testing will occur in the Westbrook Respiratory Assessment Clinic (207.857.8174) daily from 8 am – 8 pm. Non-work related travel COVID tests can be obtained at the Northern Light Pharmacy on Fore River Parkway Monday through Friday from 8 am – 6 pm (207.535.1600).
