EAST WINDSOR – Immediate Care in East Windsor added a COVID-19 mobile testing center in the parking lot of Town Center Plaza.
The site, located at 319 Route 130 north, is in the same Shop Rite-anchored strip mall where Immediate Care has a walk-in urgent care facility.
Patients suspected of having COVID symptoms or others desiring to get tested for any reason are directed to the mobile unit, which conducts up to 300 nasal and saliva tests a day, according to information provided by Jaffe Communications.
“At this challenging time for residents in our community, the township appreciates the value and benefit of providing a local, convenient, in-person testing option,” Mayor Janice S. Mironov said in the statement, noting Immediate Care is a popular local medical service provider in the community.
Sal Cannizzaro, CEO of Red Bank-based Immediate Care, said the mobile center in East Windsor is the first of a string of mobile testing centers the company has launched in the past two months to help serve the growing demand in Central Jersey, according to the statement.
Cannizzaro expects these testing centers to ultimately morph into full-time vaccination centers, as vaccines become available to the general public, according to the statement.
“We envision our mobile site will be in East Windsor through 2021, as we continue to provide critical services to township residents during this difficult pandemic,” he said in the statement. “We are appreciative of Mayor Mironov and her team, who have welcomed us with open arms as we work together to address this once-in-a-century public health emergency.”
The testing site accepts all insurance. Those who are uninsured can still receive a test at no cost through government funding.
