Primary Care Walk-In Clinic Starts COVID Vaccination By Moderna in Pasco & Hernando Counties Of Florida

NEW PORT RICHEY, FL. – Dr. Dhaliwal, Board Certified Internist had been in private practice (Primary Care Walk-in Clinic) since 1993 in New Port Richey after finishing his Internal Medicine Residency training from Flushing Hospital Albert Einstein University Affiliate.

He also has 2nd office in Spring Hill since 2000, covered by his associate Ms. Eulora Mechel, APRN for over 5 years.

Both offices (An Emergency Room Alternative) had never been closed during COVID time since March 2020.

Dr. Dhaliwal states, “We have had a hard time hiring employees due to federal and state aid as unemployed benefits. We kept the doors open thanks to employees that stayed with the company in this difficult time.”

Primary Care introduced COVID testing (Antigen and Antibody) before any other medical clinics and now started Moderna Vaccination at both locations.

They get Moderna Vaccine supply from the Federal Government directly and given to patients free of charge, though insurance patients are billed for administration fee.

Non-insurance patients get the vaccination totally free though it is paid for by Federal Government. Patients have to call and make an appointment to each office since each vial of the vaccine has 10 shots that need to be consumed in 6 hours otherwise it is wasted.

At both of our locations, the office treats COVID Positive patients with Prednisone, Tamiflu, and Z-Pack irrespective of whether they are symptomatic or not.

All COVID-positive patients are checked again in 7 days. Most of them are negative. The repeat positive ones if positive and symptomatic, are treated with Doxycycline and experimental drug Ivermectin.

The latter is not FDA-approved. As long as the patient is informed, the latter drug can be given. There is scientific evidence of studies indicating that Ivermectin helps with COVID virus patients.

Recently, the federal government has made available Auto Antibodies by infusion and S/Q injections at some locations. Primary Care Walk-in Clinic has applied to become an infusion center.

COVID rapid antigen testing from Nose and rapid Antibody from finger stick drop of blood are billed to Insurances. Urgent Care (Medicaid HMOs) and non-insurance patients are charged $25 each.

Many families, workplaces, and school children come to the office in groups to get their COVID status checked. We have seen un-vaccinated people showing positive COVID more commonly than those that are vaccinated.

“CDC has recommended for 3rd Booster Vaccine 8 months after the 2nd shot for all eligible patients. Even if you had the previous 2 vaccines at another place, you can get your 3rd vaccine at one of our locations,” said Primary Care Walk-In Clinic.
