These sites are only for distribution of COVID-19 antigen tests. Staff at these sites will not be administering any COVID-19 tests.

Vaccines will not be available at these sites. To find a vaccine clinic near you visit buckscounty.gov/vaccines.

Bucks EMA is anticipating a high volume of traffic at the distribution sites. Anyone coming to a drive-through site should be prepared to wait in line for some time before receiving tests.

In the event of inclement weather, distribution sites may be closed or delayed. Check buckscounty.gov for cancellation notices.
