Syracuse mobile medical services company to offer free flu shots, Covid reminders on Tuesday

Syracuse, NY – A company that does home medical visits in the Syracuse area will provide free flu shots, Covid boosters and metabolic tests on Tuesday.

Drakos Clinical Laboratories will offer the services as part of the launch of its new medical services division, Mobile Integrated Health Services.

The free event will take place from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Drakos’ office at 6333 Route 298, Suite 102, East Syracuse.

Patients can register on site or on the company’s website. The event will be limited to 100 patients.

Drakos was founded in 2020. It initially focused on providing mobile laboratory testing on the sets of filmmaker Liverpool American High.

Drakos is launching a new division, Mobile Integrated Health Services, which will provide patient care at home, via telehealth or at the corporate office.

The new service can provide care for non-emergency health issues so patients can avoid long waits in hospital emergency rooms, said Heather Drake, paramedic and company founder.

The company has several trucks that serve as mobile laboratories. It has a team of doctors, nurses, lab technicians, paramedics, and other healthcare providers.

Mobile Integrated Health Services does not accept health insurance. By keeping its overhead low, the new service can keep its costs affordable, Drake said.

The Company displays the prices for the Services on its website.

For example, it charges $40 for a Covid antigen test, $120 for a Covid PCR test, and $49 for a lipid cholesterol blood test.
