The City of Phoenix, along with its healthcare partner Vincere Cancer Care, will introduce its mobile COVID-19 testing van, the first of its kind in Arizona, as part of the city’s effort to deliver free COVID-19 testing to underserved communities.

The COVID-19 testing van will offer viral and antibody tests, which will be administered by VIncere’s trained medical staff. Vincere is one of few medical facilities in the State to obtain antigen and antibody test kits that produce results within 15 minutes. They will also offer the more common viral test that produces results in 2 to 10 days.

The van is a 2020 Ford T-250 Transit with a customized interior that includes a workstation, generator with electrical outlets and USB ports, refrigerator, and shelving. An A/C unit is mounted on the roof and an electric awning soon will be installed. The operations of the COVID-19 testing van will be fully managed by the staff of Vincere Cancer Care. The custom wrap features illustrated images of various individuals wearing protective face coverings, as a friendly reminder to the community to “Mask up.”

COVID-19 testing van will begin its operations on Tuesday, August 18 with testing hours from 7:00 am-1:00 pm (closed Wednesdays and Sundays). Testing is available to everyone; appointments are required. If available, insurance information will be requested but is not required to be tested.
