Starting on May 5, 2021, Northeast Ohio travelers can get easy and valid Covid-19 tests at Akron-Canton Airport (CAK) before departing. TACKL Health clinic offers testing and other medical services like flu shots and aid for common ailments like an upset stomach.

CAK is TACKL Health’s fourth airport location after Grand Rapids, Pittsburgh, and Cleveland. For TACKL, the focus of a health and wellness clinic at the airport is to assist travelers in implementing health protocols, especially in the middle of the pandemic. For travelers, this means saving time as they can get proper test results just at the departure site.

“As travel demand increases, we look forward to assisting travelers in securing the proper test results needed before entering some travel destinations,” said Ren Camacho as the president and CEO of CAK. “While current offerings focus on Covid-19, creating a permanent health and wellness clinic at the airport is just an additional way we are working to help our passengers save time and stay well.”

Located near the south end of baggage claim, at door 6 of CAK, TACKL Health also ensures that the tests are administered by trained and licensed healthcare professionals. Their onsite testing implements improved services, including the use of microSURE™ cleaner and disinfectant spray, nanoSeptic self-cleaning surfaces, and a controlled air quality mechanism through UV light filtration.

Testing prices can be seen below:

  • PCR Test $125
  • Rapid PCR Test $275
  • Rapid Antigen Test $75
  • Rapid Antibody Test $65

Here is some additional information for testing:

  • Testing will need full payment at the front, while reimbursement by the patient’s insurance provider may be eligible.
  • Patients can come directly to the clinic and get tested with no appointment needed.
  • Short-term free parking will be validated for up to one hour.
  • The clinic operates seven days a week from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
