SAN DIEGO — CVS Health began offering free COVID-19 testing Friday for children 12 and older.

CVS Health said the self-swab tests are no cost to patients. You must register in advance at to schedule an appointment.

A parent or legal guardian must complete the online registration for minors and patients 12 to 15 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian when they come for the test. Parents or guardians seeking testing for children under the age of 12 should consult with a pediatrician to identify appropriate testing options.

Procedures vary by location and patients may be directed to stay in their cars and proceed to either the pharmacy drive-thru window or a parking space or tent located in the parking lot or, in limited locations, to enter a CVS store. Patients will be provided with a test kit and given instructions, and a CVS Pharmacy team member will observe the self-swab process.
