Map of COVID-19 testing sites

The City of Boston is partnering with community health centers, hospitals, and pharmacies to increase access to COVID-19 testing for Boston residents.

Please note:
  • Testing is free regardless of insurance or immigration status, and will not affect "public charge" rule determinations.  
  • Some sites require you to call ahead for pre-screening and to schedule an appointment.
  • Hours vary between sites. Please call ahead.
  • Many of these sites have capacity for languages in addition to English.
  • Contact your health insurance provider with insurance coverage questions.

The multilingual Mayor's Health Line (617-534-5050) can help with health insurance applications, navigating Boston's health care system and COVID-19 questions.
