Pharmacies ‘exceptionally low’ on RATs as rollout ramps up

Many pharmacies have an “exceptionally low” supply of rapid antigen tests as the kits become free for concession card holders, says Manly Vale Pharmacy Managing Pharmacist Lachlan Rose. 

“We have literally got in the order of about 100,” Mr Rose told Sky News Australia. 

“So when you think about the scheme of things - we’re just one local pharmacy here in suburban Sydney - that’s not going to go a long way.” 

Mr Rose it could be another one to two weeks before much of the stock which is on order flows through to pharmacies.
