Helping Tufts Health Unify Members During the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

We want to make it as safe and easy as possible for you to access your health care during the pandemic.

To learn more about COVID-19 symptoms, vaccine recommendations, testing and more, visit our COVID-19 Resource Center.



There is also a federal program to distribute at-home rapid tests to community health centers and Medicare-certified health clinics. Check with your local community health centers for more information.

There are state and local programs in place for residents to search for and access free COVID-19 testing, including laboratory testing sites. Visit Massachusetts COVID-19 testing resources for the most up-to-date and accurate information. Your local board of health or your city or town website may have additional information.

  • BinaxNOW
  • FlowFlex
  • IHealth
  • Inteliswab
  • QuickVue At-home
