CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital-Sulphur Springs News

COVID Testing at CHRISTUS Trinity Clinics | Urgent Care

Unfortunately, due to a shortage of COVID testing supplies, we cannot guarantee that rapid tests will be available. If rapid tests are not available, we can send out a COVID PCR test, which typically results in two days, but could take up to seven days if the testing volume is high. We are working diligently to obtain additional supplies and appreciate your understanding; please know that we remain dedicated to providing you with the very best care possible.

Thank you for your respect and consideration!

With a spike in COVID-19 cases in Hopkins County, we appreciate anyone who has made an appointment with a provider at one of our clinic locations kindly canceling within four hours of their scheduled time. It allows filling the visiting slot with someone else who may need it. Thank you in advance for letting us provide for your healthcare needs while extending grace to our staff.

**UPDATED – COVID Vaccine Clinics: 

CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Sulphur Springs offers a COVID Vaccine Clinic every Friday morning from 9:00 am to 11:00 am in the hospital’s main lobby until further notice. The available vaccines include Moderna (two-doses, ages 18 and older) and Pfizer (two-doses, ages 12 and older), and Johnson & Johnson (one-dose, ages 18 and older). 

***This includes all three brands of boosters for fully vaccinated people. Appointments are not required, but a parent or guardian must accompany anyone 17 and younger. 

CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Sulphur Springs will be partnering with Northeast Texas Public Health District to provide COVID vaccinations for children ages five through 11. The vaccine clinic will be held in the MMU tent located in the parking lot north of the hospital (between Dr. Arnecke and Podiatry offices) from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm during the week of January 31. The second vaccine in the series will be available four weeks later during the week of February 28 at the same time, from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm.

There is no cost to receive the vaccine and no appointment required. Please note the hospital will still offer the weekly adult COVID vaccine clinic on Friday from 9:00–11:00 am.
