A second pack of free Covid-19 self-tests will be available for the fully vaccinated as of January 25, the health ministry announced on Thursday.
The announcement added that distribution of the first free self-test kit with five coronavirus nasal tests continues until January 24.
Eligible to receive a free self-test kit are those who have completed their vaccination, including those who have received their booster jab.
For those registered in Gesy, the self-tests can be picked up from any pharmacy registered in the system.
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 Old Nicosia hospital, the Motherhood centre at the old Larnaca hospital and the Motherhood centre at the Paphos general hospital, Motherhood centre at the Famagusta health centre on 25 Christou Kkeli street Paralimni and from 12 to 1.30pm at the Motherhood centre of the old Limassol hospital
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 who test positive must 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.
