Rapid antigen tests are widely available and free at participating pharmacies. Anyone can ask for a kit without having to show identification. Visitors to pharmacies can also pick up a kit for someone else. Pharmacies will hand out kits one at a time. Please visit the BC Pharmacy Association website for a list of participating pharmacies.

Your primary care provider can order a PCR test for eligible patients through normal diagnostic procedures when using a rapid antigen test is not appropriate or recommended. If you do not have a primary care provider, you can call Fraser Health Virtual Care (1-800-314-0999).
