With results in only 15 minutes, the COVID-19 Antigen Test is a nasopharyngeal swab test which detects the COVID-19 Antigen.  Early detection allows more efficient and effective control of the virus.

Antigen tests are not as accurate as a PCR test and are designed to detect the virus at levels that are more likely to mean you’re infectious and could spread the infection to others.

If your test is negative, you will be emailed an EU Digital Covid Certificate in about 30 minutes.

If you have the Health Passport Worldwide app, we can also upload your results to it.

Please download the Health Passport Worldwide app prior to your appointment and register yourself and any dependents who will need this certificate also.  Once the results are through, they are uploaded to the portal on your Health Passport Worldwide account.

Adults and children aged over 7 years (with parental consent) can use this service.  

However, the test is not suitable for anyone:

  • with symptoms of Covid-19
  • who thinks they may have Covid-19
  • who may be a close contact of someone with Covid-19
  • who has recently arrived in Ireland, and has been advised to self-isolate

A negative test result is valid for 72 hours, but if it is required for foreign travel, it may be required to be performed less than 48 hours before arrival in a foreign country.

If your antigen test is negative, we will send you an email with your EU Digital Covid Certificate within 30 minutes.

If you have the Health Passport Worldwide app, we can also upload your results to it.

Please download the Health Passport Worldwide app prior to your appointment and register yourself and any dependents who will need this certificate also.  Once the results are through, they are uploaded to the portal on your Health Passport Worldwide account.

 

If you require this test for international travel please ensure you are familiar with the current requirements of the country that you are travelling to.  While some countries accept the results of rapid antigen tests if taken less than 48 before arrival, others do not.  It is your responsibility to book the test you require for your circumstances.  Please be aware that the age requirement for testing of children also varies by country.

For EU travel, the website https://reopen.europa.eu/en is a useful reference to check current entry requirements for various countries.  Re-open EU is also available as a mobile app.

Please Note:

  • Although the test has high sensitivity and specificity, it is not 100% accurate and may give false-positive or false-negative results.
  • If you test positive, this means that the COVID-19 virus was identified at the time of testing and you must follow government health requirements and attend the HSE for a PCR test.
  • If you test negative, you will be provided with an EU Digital Covid certificate by email, or the result will be uploaded to your Health Passport Worldwide app.  A negative result means that the COVID-19 virus was not identified in at the time of testing.  It does not mean that you haven’t had COVID-19 or that you won’t develop the infection in the future.
  • Lombard Pharmacy will not be liable to you for any losses, costs or damages that you suffer or incur as a result of receiving a positive test result (including if you’re unable to travel abroad as a result of testing positive).
  • The service is subject to appointment, specially trained staff and stock availability.
