DoorDash offers same-day deliveries of COVID home testing kits

US on-demand delivery company DoorDash is working with Vault Health and Everlywell to deliver COVID-19 home testing kits.

Costing just over $100 each test (but mostly recoverable through health insurance) the Vault Health COVID-19 Saliva Test Kit and the Everlywell COVID-19 Test Home Kit DTC have both been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

“Amidst the pandemic, one of our priorities has been to make health and wellness essentials more accessible for customers, with the goal of helping businesses leverage our last-mile logistics infrastructure to provide more convenient and timely access to their health supplies,” Anna Katherine Barnett-Hart, director of New Verticals at DoorDash, said in a statement.

She continued, “We’re proud to partner with Vault Health and Everlywell to provide FDA Authorized COVID-19 PCR test collection kits on-demand to customers through our marketplace for the first time, offering the speed and reliability Americans need in these circumstances.”

The first same-day COVID-19 home testing kits deliveries will be rolled out from 12 Dashsmart dark stores in cities including Baltimore, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Minneapolis and Phoenix, with more locations rolling out in the coming months.
