Vanderbilt Health OnCall and the Vanderbilt Health Clinic at Walgreens locations are open for business and great options for simple injuries and minor illnesses not related to the coronavirus. Walgreens locations are also open for blood draws for lab tests.
For patients without symptoms of cough, fever or shortness of breath, both of these services are good options for care for everything from seasonal allergies and urinary tract infections to minor cuts and sprains.
With Vanderbilt Health OnCall, you can continue to shelter at home. A nurse practitioner will come to you within two hours of your call. For patients with My Health at Vanderbilt and insurance (which includes the VUMC workforce), Vanderbilt Health OnCall currently offers telehealth visits in Tennessee, Kentucky and Alabama.
Vanderbilt Health OnCall will refer patients with fever, cough or shortness of breath to an assessment location for testing. Nurse practitioners will also perform follow-up visits, via telehealth or in-home for patients who already have tested positive for COVID-19.
At Vanderbilt Health Clinic at Walgreens locations, social distancing and other precautions are followed. And patients can further minimize potential exposure to others by scheduling online and arriving in time for the appointment.
Individuals with symptoms of cough, fever and shortness of breath can continue to be seen at Vanderbilt Health’s various walk-in clinic locations and Vanderbilt Children’s After-Hours Clinics. Please call the hotline at (888) 312-0847 for guidance.
