Viral Antigen (Rapid) Tests
We can perform a rapid viral antigen test in our pharmacy and have a result within 20 minutes! Please note that this type of test is not universally accepted by all airlines and international travel destinations. Please confirm with your airline if rapid testing is accepted before booking. The cost is $70 per test. We will provide an official report that can be used for travel clearance.
Nucleic Acid Amplification Tests (RT-PCR)
We also provide specimen collection and testing service for travelers who require a Nucleic Acid Amplification Test for travel. Our pharmacist will collect a nasal specimen which is then sent to our lab for RT-PCR analysis (internationally approved and recognized lab-based test). We will provide a result and official lab report within 48 hours via email.
