From Morning Report, 8:20 am on 26 November 2021

Pharmacy leaders have praised the policy to roll out Covid-19 rapid antigen tests through the country's pharmacies.

From mid-December, New Zealanders will be able to buy rapid antigen tests for between $10 to $15.

Under supervision of a pharmacist, they can take the test, get a result, and have their results logged in under a half-hour.

Pharmacy Guild chief executive Andrew Gaudin spoke to Morning Report.
