Looking for a Covid PCR Test in Wellingborough?
3Q Pharmacy is here to help you. We are offering you the opportunity to jet off with a reliable Covid PCR Test in Wellingborough. Covid has had a staggering impact on the travel industry, with millions of people across the globe being forced to cancel their travel plans in 2020. However, over a year later, airlines and countries are starting to reintroduce travel; this is all thanks to the availability of PCR Tests such as ours.
Please note: Our PCR tests can also be used for day 2 testing for the unvaccinated traveller.
How does a Covid PCR test work?
Many airlines and countries now require documentation to prove a negative Covid test 48-72 hours prior to travel. PCR stands for Polymerase Chain Reaction. This is used to detect the active presence of Covid-19 antigens. However, this test does not detect antibodies, which represent the body’s immune response to a previous case of infection.
Why do I need a Fit to Fly test?
Covid PCR tests are used for people of all ages who wish to travel abroad, for varying reasons. Most travellers are now required to provide certification that details a lack of an active Covid infection.
Regulations differ depending on the airline requirements or country you are visiting. Therefore, we advise that you visit the Government and Foreign Office Websites for guidance in advance of your travel. Moreover, you should book with us as soon as you can so that you don’t get caught out.
