DoorDash is now probably your easiest access to a home COVID-19[female[feminine test kit, because the company will let you order one and have it delivered to your front door.
There is a catch, however. Test kits can only be delivered to certain cities in the United States. Because only a handful of cities are currently considered supported markets. DoorDash, who is a partnership with two different healthcare companies, Vault Health and Everlywell, is generally one of the go-to apps for food delivery.
Over the past year, with everyone locked in their homes during the pandemic, DoorDash has undoubtedly seen a surge in usage and deliveries for everything from coffee and bagels to weekday dinners. . And there will likely be an increase in the use of this, too.
DoorDash will only deliver home COVID-19 test kits to supported cities
While this is something DoorDash wants to roll out on a larger scale, there are currently only a handful of supported markets.
This includes Baltimore, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Minneapolis, and Phoenix. There are, however, a total of 12 markets where this type of delivery is supported. And all of this can be done directly through the DoorDash app.
There is also an alternative to ordering these kits from home. Instead of ordering through DoorDash, you can order from the Vault Health website. The advantage is that you can order your kits in more markets. 20 in total. And the kits can always be delivered the same day.
For those who don’t live in one of the supported markets that allow direct ordering through DoorDash, this is how you get the kit delivered as quickly as possible.
The 20 markets that support this method include Baltimore, Chicago, Houston, Las Vegas, Phoenix, and San Diego to name a few.
The kits cost $ 119 and will be expanded to more markets in the future
If you’re ready to try and get yourself a COVID-19 home test, be prepared to shell out $ 119 at DoorDash or Vault Health.
As this is the cost of an individual test. If you are not in a supported market at the moment, this should change in the near future. DoorDash and Vault Health plan to expand delivery of test kits to more markets throughout the year.
Large metropolitan areas obviously have the best chance of being added to the list early on. So if you are in a smaller town, your luck might be even better at taking a test elsewhere.
