Homer Medical Center COVID-19 Information

Update (June 18th, 2022): Covid-19 vaccinations for infants and toddlers ages 6 months to 5 years of age are now recommended by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and available under FDA emergency use authorization. We are now offering appointments for this and all age and eligibility groups.

Homer Medical Center is open and taking appointments for all regular services, including immunization and other preventive care. To keep our patients and staff safe and to limit the spread of COVID-19 in our community, we are currently limiting entrance to the clinic to: those with appointments and those who have completed screening by phone for our weekly after-hours clinics on Tuesdays & Thursdays.  No visitors or non-essential persons may enter. A patient’s caregiver, or child’s parent/guardian may accompany them. Please do not enter if you have any of the symptoms of COVID-19. Call us for help determining if you need to be tested for COVID-19.

Currently, we are screening for symptoms during scheduling of appointments, and by phone once you arrive at the clinic for your appointment or for the after-hours clinic. When you arrive to the clinic parking area, please call (907) 235-8586 before entering the clinic if you have not yet been screened over the phone. If you were already screened over the phone when you made your appointment, and have not developed any new symptoms or been exposed since then, you may proceed inside to the registration desk.

Please help us keep our staff & patients safe: Everyone is required to correctly wear a surgical procedure mask over the nose, mouth, and under the chin when in the clinic. We are also limiting waiting area seating to allow for proper cleaning in between appointments, as well as asking all patients to wash hands upon entry of the exam rooms.

Call us at (907) 235-8586 for more information.
