A Note to Our Patients

A new form of Covid-19 called the delta variant is spreading throughout Austin. Since it is much more contagious, we are experiencing a surge in infections and hospitalizations. Our local hospitals are becoming overwhelmed.

The most important thing we can do to respond to this crisis is get vaccinated. Once vaccinated against Covid, you are 8 times less likely to be infected with it and 25 times less likely to be hospitalized or die from it. Most of the patients currently hospitalized and in the ICU with Covid are unvaccinated.

All of the physicians at Capital Medical Clinic are vaccinated against Covid. Nearly all staff is vaccinated. We require the small number of unvaccinated employees to be tested for Covid twice weekly.

Capital Medical Clinic continues to offer drive up testing for Covid 19.  We have appointment times every day from 2:30 – 4:00 for drive up COVID-19 testing.  If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms: cough, shortness of breath, fever, diarrhea, or other respiratory issues, please let us know when you call for your appointment and we will schedule a COVID test before your appointment.
