RAPIDLY DEPLOYABLE, INSULATED, AND HEATED DRIVE-THROUGH TESTING AND VACCINATION SHELTERS FOR WINTER USE
Government agencies, state and city health departments, hospitals, urgent care facilities, emergency management, first responders, retailers and pharmacies needing to quickly establish drive-through testing facilities or start planning for a vaccination program for the coronavirus (COVID-19) or other infectious diseases will find our rapidly deployable structures the superior choice compared to typical pop-up canopies or party tents.
Drive-through testing and vaccination stations from Alaska Structures® are weatherproof, made of higher-quality and longer-lasting materials, and engineered to meet specific wind and snow loads. Our engineered fabric structures provide a safer space to protect healthcare workers, testing equipment, as well as patients and their vehicles from the elements.
Our drive-through testing stations and drive-through vaccination centers are easily assembled and can be left in place for long-term screening and vaccination operations or quickly taken down and relocated. Our engineered fabric structures can be safely anchored to any level surface, including asphalt or concrete parking lots.
EXAMPLES OF DRIVE-THROUGH TESTING AND VACCINATION SHELTERS
OUTDOOR STRUCTURES FOR HIGH CAPACITY DRIVE-THROUGH TESTING AND DRIVE-THROUGH VACCINATION CENTERS
Our drive-through testing and vaccination facilities are available in 21 ft. wide x 20 ft. long or 22 ft. wide x 25 ft. long configurations. Both drive-through shelters are capable of accommodating two vehicles at a time for testing. Standard height vehicles will have adequate clearance to enter the facilities. Removable and roll-up side curtains can be equipped with large screen windows for proper ventilation and or clear plastic windows to improve sight lines. End panels with multiple entry options are available to create a semi- or completely closed testing and vaccination centers. Optional insulation and infrared heating systems are also available to help protect staff from cold and adverse winter weather.
The drive-through testing and vaccination centers from Alaska Structures utilizes a high-strength, galvanized steel frame system. The tensioned fabric membrane is UV stabilized to withstand prolonged exposure to the sun, will not rot, is mold and mildew resistant, chemically inert, and exceeds the fire safety requirements outlined in the California Code of Regulations (CCR) for membrane structures. Setup can be accomplished in 30 minutes with a trained crew of 4.
The 21 ft. wide x 20 ft. long and the 22 ft. wide x 25 ft. long Alaska Structure are based on the HGX Series and is uniquely designed for the following applications:
- Drive-Through Testing and Vaccination Stations for Coronavirus
- Temporary Vaccination Sites for Coronavirus

- Walk-Up Testing and Vaccination Shelters for Coronavirus
DRIVE-THROUGH VACCINATION CLINICS FOR CORONAVIRUS
When a vaccine for COVID-19 is approved and becomes available, quickly administering it to a high percentage of the population will be crucial in order to develop herd immunity, prevent further spread of the coronavirus disease, and lower mortalities.
Once a COVID-19 vaccine is available, regardless of the potential agencies involved with the distribution (U.S. Department of Defense (DOD), the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), individual states, contract providers through the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), or private partners) steps will be needed to ensure the continued safety of healthcare workers, doctors, nurses, and patients at hospitals and medical clinics. Given how easily COVID-19 is contracted, retail clinics like CVS and Walgreens should also consider alternative solutions to providing a future COVID-19 vaccine.
High capacity drive-through vaccination facilities are the most efficient way to quickly provide COVID-19 vaccines en masse.
Given the urgent need for a vaccine solution, Alaska Structures already produces drive-through testing stations that can also serve as drive-through vaccination stations. Organizations planning to utilize drive-through vaccinations can buy high-quality outdoor structures for drive-through vaccination clinics, or easily repurpose their existing drive-through testing facilities. As we move into the fall and winter, insulation and heating systems can also be added to the facilities to make them comfortable for staff year-round.
WALK-UP VACCINATION SHELTERS FOR COVID-19
Our facilities can be used for walk-up testing and vaccination shelters. Advantages to this type of vaccination shelter includes:
- Open-air or enclosed shelter solutions to quickly create a safe space outside of hospitals, urgent care facilities, clinics, pharmacies and retailers chosen to provide the COVID vaccines, when available.
- Can be insulated and heated with infrared heating systems to protect staff, equipment, and patients being tested or vaccinated for COVID-19 from harsh winter weather.
- Optional lighting and electrical system provides an easy way to connect to shore power or use a generator.
- Innovate clear safety curtain, can be added to any roll-up side curtain and used to provide a protective barrier for healthcare workers performing COVID testing or giving the coronavirus vaccine.
