Government agencies, state and city health departments, hospitals, urgent care facilities, emergency management, first responders, retailers and pharmacies must often quickly establish drive-through testing facilities or vaccination centers for COVID-19 or other infectious diseases. Rapidly deployable buildings from Alaska Structures® are the superior choice compared to typical pop-up canopies or party tents.
Our drive-through testing and vaccination stations are weatherproof. We also make them from high-quality, durable materials that outlast other prefabricated building types. Additionally, we engineer them to meet area-specific wind and snow loads, as local codes or the International Building Code (IBC) requires. Our engineered fabric structures provide a safe space that protects healthcare workers, testing equipment, patients and vehicles from the elements.
Ease for Clients, Workers and Patients
Furthermore, clients can easily assemble our drive-through testing stations and drive-through vaccination centers. Clients can leave them in place for long-term screening and vaccinations or take them down quickly for relocation. Plus, our engineered fabric structures safely anchor to any level surface, including asphalt or concrete parking lots.
Engineered to meet local codes and the international building code (IBC)
Reduced logistics, rapid installation and easy relocation
Weatherproof structures for protecting people and equipment
Designed to withstand extreme conditions anywhere in the world
Outdoor Structures for High-Capacity Drive-Through Testing and Drive-Through Vaccination Centers
Our drive-through testing and vaccination facilities are available in 21′ wide by 20′ long and 22′ wide by 25′ long sizes. Both drive-through shelters can accommodate two vehicles at a time for testing. Standard-height vehicles have adequate clearance to enter the facilities. Additionally, we can equip removable and roll-up side curtains with large screen windows for proper ventilation and clear plastic windows to improve sightlines.
End panels with multiple entry options are available to create partially 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.
Drive-through testing and vaccination centers from Alaska Structures use a high-strength, galvanized steel frame system. We UV-stabilize the tensioned fabric membrane to withstand prolonged sun exposure. The membrane will not rot, is mold- and mildew-resistant and is chemically inert. Our tensioned fabric membranes can exceed the fire safety requirements in the California Code of Regulations (CCR) for membrane structures.
Moreover, clients can set up structures in 30 minutes with a trained crew of four.
We offer a large selection of building models and sizes to create rapidly deployable testing stations and drive-through vaccination centers. Call us at +1-907-344-1565 to discuss your project!
We base the 21′ wide by 20′ long and the 22′ wide by 25′ long buildings on our HGB Series™. We also uniquely design them for the following applications:
Drive-Through Testing and Vaccination Stations for Coronavirus
Temporary Vaccination Sites for Coronavirus
High-Capacity Drive-Through Testing and Vaccination Centers for Coronavirus
Drive-Up Testing and Vaccination Facilities for Coronavirus
Temporary Drive-Through Testing and Vaccination Sites for Coronavirus
Walk-Up Testing and Vaccination Shelters for Coronavirus
Vaccination Shelter Setup Demo
Watch a quick demonstration on how to set up a drive-through vaccination shelter system for COVID-19 or other infectious diseases. The insulated and heated outdoor structure measures 22′ wide by 25′ long and features 7′ eaves and a peak height of 11’5″.
Walk-Up Vaccination Shelters
Clients use our facilities for walk-up testing and vaccination shelters. There are many advantages to this type of vaccination shelter:
When available, open-air or enclosed shelter solutions quickly create a safe space outside hospitals, urgent care facilities, clinics, pharmacies and retailers to administer COVID-19 vaccines.
We can insulate and heat this shelter with infrared heating systems to protect staff, equipment and patients. While staff test or vaccinate patients, they’ll be comfortable in harsh winter weather.
Optional lighting and electrical systems provide an easy way to connect to shore power or use a generator.
We can add an innovative clear safety curtain to any roll-up side curtain. This curtain provides a protective barrier for healthcare workers while testing or administering vaccines.
Need Patient Isolation Shelters?
BLU-MED Response Systems® (BLU-MED) is the medical division of AKS Industries, Inc., and the world’s leading provider of rapidly deployable medical shelter systems and mobile field hospitals. Click the button below if you need self-contained medical shelters with negative pressure isolation systems to safely isolate and treat patients infected with COVID-19 or other airborne infectious diseases.
Quickly administering vaccines to a high percentage of the population is crucial in developing herd immunity, preventing further spread and lowering mortality rates.
Many potential agencies may be involved with the distribution of a vaccine:
U.S. Department of Defense (DOD)
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)
Contract providers via the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA)
Regardless of the agency, we will take the steps necessary to ensure the continued safety of healthcare workers, doctors, nurses and patients at hospitals and medical clinics. Given how easily airborne infectious diseases like COVID-19 spread, retail clinics like CVS and Walgreens should consider alternative solutions for future vaccines.
Furthermore, high-capacity drive-through vaccination facilities are the most efficient way to administer vaccines en masse quickly.
Alaska Structures produces drive-through testing stations that can also serve as drive-through vaccination stations. Organizations planning to use drive-through vaccinations can buy high-quality outdoor structures for drive-through vaccination clinics or easily repurpose their existing drive-through testing facilities. If they need testing and vaccination facilities in the fall and winter, optional insulation and heating systems are available for year-round comfort.
Alaska Structures bases the 21′ wide by 20′ long and the 22′ wide by 25′ long structures on our HGB Series building model:
