To get your free box of 5 COVID-19 rapid self-tests, check if the pharmacy that manages your file displays availability on our online appointment scheduling tool.
If you do not see a time slot available, your pharmacy may be distributing tests without using the online appointment scheduling tool.
If this is the case, validate directly with the pharmacy to find out how it is planning to proceed. The team will have the most up-to-date information regarding the level of stocks available, and the most appropriate time to come and get them. Get the contact details of my pharmacy.
To get your free box of rapid self-tests, you will need your Health Insurance card. Only one box will be given per person per 30-day period.
If you have symptoms, do not go to the pharmacy to pick up rapid tests. If you already have a rapid test, use one according to government guidelines. It is recommended that you verify your result with a second test 24 hours later. Some people may be eligible for a PCR test at a screening center. If you don’t have any rapid tests or if you get a positive test result, please self-isolate for 5 full days if you are fully vaccinated or 10 days if you are not fully vaccinated. Use our delivery service if you need pharmacy products.
Given the limited quantity of boxes available, a pharmacist can prioritize distribution to people who already have a pharmacy record. This practice stems from the duties they owe to their patients according to their code of ethics. Find out more (French only).
Oral medication for COVID-19 (PaxlovidTM) is available free of charge from pharmacies. It can be prescribed by a pharmacist, a specialized nurse practitioner, or a doctor. The treatment is for people with COVID-19 who are at high risk of complications.

Stockpiling on medication in advance can trigger drug shortages for many patients. Everyone must work together to ensure that people who are the most vulnerable have access to essential medications. Your pharmacist is responsible for the procurement of medications and knows the quantities required to meet patients' needs.
