Caring For Our Community

COVID Response

Kintegra is working hard to provide our patients and community members with access to the information and tools needed to keep healthy during these challenging times.  This COVID-19 response page provides guidance on mitigating exposure, and information regarding access to testing locations and vaccinations.  With guidance from the CDC and NCDHHS, Kintegra works closely with local Health Departments and community partners to keep the community informed and increase access to these services.  Please visit this page for regular updates.

Keeping Healthy at Home

The best advice for all of us is the ‘Three Ws’.  Here’s and important message from Dr. Mandy Cohen, Secretary for the NC Department of Health and Human Services.

COVID Vaccination

Kintegra is committed to facilitating  access to the COVID vaccine for the patients and communities we serve.  Working with hospitals, Health Departments and other community partners, and as vaccine allocations permit, we are making connections:  providing access to vaccinations, either directly in clinic for patients, or through community events.
