HOW TO ORDER RAPID ANTIGEN TESTS
Ministry of Health Notification 2/3/2022:
If you are symptomatic or a household contact, you can now order rapid antigen tests (RATs) through the newly launched RAT requester site. Please see the below link.
Requesting RATs on the Requester site is an easy step-by-step process. RATs can be requested on behalf of someone else.
You can order the test kits from the website requestrats.covid19.health.nz or by ringing 0800 222 478 (option 3) from 8am to 8pm. People will need to have access to a mobile phone to validate their order.
You will be issued an order number. You can then collect your RAT order from a collection site listed on Healthpoint, or have someone collect it for you.
For people are not unwell or a household contact but want to get a RAT for other purposes, such as to visit an elderly relative, there are retail options now, including the Chemist Warehouse and Countdown.
