Symptoms

Reported illnesses have ranged from mild symptoms to severe illness and death for confirmed coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases. If you have symptoms like cough, fever, or other respiratory problems or you are concerned that you may have been exposed to COVID-19:

  • Contact your primary care provider directly to set up a virtual visit and receive guidance. Learn more here.
  • Schedule a visit at one of the Pardee Urgent Care locations.
  • If you have trouble breathing or are experiencing a medical emergency, GO directly to the closest emergency department or CALL 9-1-1 and inform the dispatcher you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.

COVID-19 Vaccines

Pardee is now offering the COVID-19 vaccine at select urgent care locations. Walk-in’s will not be accepted for vaccines only, so we ask that you schedule an appointment using the online scheduling tool below. Online scheduling is for the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine only. Click here to schedule your vaccine appointment.


COVID-19 Testing

New accurate, reliable and  4-in-1 COVID-19 tests are now available. Pardee offers a COVID-19, Flu A, Flu B, and RSV (a common respiratory virus) all in one test as all of these viruses may present with very similar symptoms but require very different approaches to treatment. It’s important to determine which virus you may have and therefore the best course of action to get you feeling good again.

Pardee has invested in the equipment necessary to not only make this available for patients at the hospital, but easily accessible for the community to access at the Pardee Urgent Care locations in Brevard, Fletcher, Mills River, and Hendersonville.
