In the context of the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, rapid antigen self-tests are being distributed to the following people, among others:

Please note that only one voucher is sent to each household.

The self-tests can be collected at pharmacies in Luxembourg from 20 May 2021 onwards on presentation of the voucher.
