Portimão to offer one free Covid-19 antigen test to local residents at six pharmacies

Portimão Council has revealed that local residents are being allowed one free Covid-19 antigen test per week at six local pharmacies – Arade, Carvalho, Central, Palma Santos, Pedra Mourinha and Rosa Nunes.

However, the scheme is only open to citizens aged over 12 and who haven’t been fully vaccinated yet or who haven’t already been infected with the virus.

Says the local council, the goal is to “dynamise the local economy and reduce new cases”.
