Starting from 24th October 2021, if you are fully vaccinated against COVID at least 14 days prior entry to the UK (England only)- under the UK, Europe or US vaccination program, you can use a lateral flow test -LFT (also known as an antigen test) for your day 2 test.

Earls Barton Pharmacy can now offer this service in advance of your planned travel for peace of mind on return. The last thing you need whilst away is to worry about sourcing a Day 2 test last minute or waiting at the airport after your return to test.
