All Victorians are eligible to collect free rapid antigen tests through participating local councils. 

Free rapid antigen tests (RATs) are available from most local councils so that all Victorians can plan ahead and get tested if they have COVID symptoms.

You can collect:

  • 2 packs of 5 RATs
  • an extra 2 packs for each person in your household.

People with disability and their carers can get 4 packs of 5 RATs.

You are not required to have a Medicare card.

You can collect RATs as many times as you need. If you run out of RATs, you can collect more to make sure you are prepared.

If you want a PCR test, visit a GP respiratory clinic or see a GP about a referral to a pathology collection centre.
