Drive-thru tests available at 11 locations
WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — Hy-Vee, Inc. has begun offering COVID-19 testing at 11 Hy-Vee pharmacy locations throughout its eight-state region. The tests are free and are administered via a Hy-Vee pharmacy drive-thru testing process. Individuals do not have to have COVID-19 symptoms to be tested, but they must register online to receive a test voucher number, testing site and appointment time.
Each location has two-hour testing windows that include 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. or 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Saturdays. Saturday hours vary by location.
Patients must register for a test voucher number, visit www.doineedacovid19test.com/ and answer the questions/provide requested information to receive a test voucher number, testing site and appointment time. The person will then arrive at the specified test site pharmacy drive thru and provide either a printed voucher number or show the voucher number on their phone before given a test kit. The Hy-Vee pharmacy employee will provide the test kit and education on how to self-administer the test and will supervise the test. The individual will then drop off their completed kit in a collection bin. The entire test process takes about five minutes. The Hy-Vee pharmacy collects all tests, which are shipped to a lab via UPS. Results will then be sent to the individual via email in three to five days.
