Xpress Wellness Urgent Care will be one of the first in Oklahoma to use Quidel’s Sofia Rapid Antigen test for Covid-19. Xpress will be providing the rapid Covid-19 tests at all 18 of their clinic locations throughout Oklahoma and Kansas. Patients who undergo this nasal swab test, similar to flu testing, will know the results within 15 minutes. The patient’s health care provider will explain results of the test during the clinic visit.

Quidel, received Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to distribute its Sofia rapid test for Covid-19 just 10 days ago; and Xpress Wellness has received kits to conduct the tests from our national medical supplier.

“We know that having access to quick results will help slow the spread of Covid-19 in many of our rural communities and also could ease the minds of our patients and their loved ones”, said Xpress Wellness Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Scott Williams.
