After a year of being in and out of lockdown, we’re all feeling optimistic about the future and starting to plan those trips abroad. We’ve been lucky enough in the UK to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, and many countries are reopening their borders to UK travellers with a Fit to Fly certificate.; you can get a Fit to Fly certificate after having a rapid antigen test. That’s why we offer a rapid antigen test in Wellingborough to help get you where you need to go safely.
What is a rapid antigen test?
A rapid antigen test is a test for COVID-19 that offers fast results, usually within 30 minutes. A rapid antigen test is one you do yourself, collecting a sample from one nostril or using a spit sample. This process is not painful, but is often uncomfortable. We also offer free lateral flow tests for everyday use, however these cannot be used as proof of a negative result for travel. You can find out more about regular testing here:

Our rapid antigen test in Wellingborough
PRICE: £60 (including fit to fly certificate)
Our rapid antigen test in Wellingborough is a self-swab test conducted in your car and not within the pharmacy itself. Full instructions on how to carry out the test will be provided with your testing kit. However, if you are feeling unsure about how to collect your sample, we have also included the video above for further guidance. Once you have completed your test, you will receive your results within 10 minutes; your subsequent fit to fly certificate will be sent via email.
Please note, this test is not suitable for anyone travelling to a destination that requires a PCR test for entry. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are up-to-date with entry requirements for the country you are travelling to. Moreover, you should also bring your passport or travel ID to your appointment so that you can check the details of the certificate before you leave.
