Fully vaccinated people will be able to get their self-test kits as of Tuesday from pharmacies, the health ministry announced on Monday.

Self-tests are a way for people “to protect both their health and their loved ones,” the ministry said.

Gesy beneficiaries who have completed their vaccination regimen including those who have received their booster jab will be able to get the kits with five self-tests within a month from Tuesday. They will be given this self-test kit just once, the health ministry clarified.

The self-tests can be picked up from any pharmacy registered with Gesy.

People who are fully vaccinated but are not Gesy beneficiaries may get their self-test kits daily between 10.30 am and 1pm from the following places:

Nicosia – Old Nicosia hospital

Limassol – Motherhood centre, old Limassol hospital

Larnaca – Motherhood centre, old Larnaca hospital

Paphos – Motherhood centre, Paphos general hospital

Famagusta – Motherhood centre, Famagusta health centre, 25 Christou Kkeli st. Paralimni

In case the self-test is positive, Gesy beneficiaries need to contact their GP to refer them for a PCR test at a public health centre in their district.

Non-Gesy beneficiaries, in case their self-test is positive, need to notify the public health coordination centre at [email protected]. They need to include in the message their full name, phone number, ID number, date of birth, their district, and a photo of their positive self-test.
