Amazon Care launched in September 2019 to bring the most patient-centric health care to customers when and where they need it. Amazon Care provides immediate access to a wide range of urgent and primary care services, including COVID-19 and flu testing, vaccinations, treatment of illnesses and injuries, preventive care, sexual health, and prescription requests and refills. When issues can’t be resolved over video, Amazon Care will dispatch a nurse to a patient’s home for additional care where in-person care is available, ranging from routine blood draws to listening to a patient’s lungs.
