Free COVID-19 Test Kits
Collaborating with the Federal Government of Canada, the Provincial Government of Alberta provides free COVID testing kits to all residents of Calgary and Alberta.
The name of the COVID-19 testing kits available in Calgary, AB, is Rapid Response COVID-19 Antigen Test Kits.
The kits are available at many Alberta pharmacies, including our pharmacy, Ogden Pharmacy. This is an excellent initiative by both the federal and provincial governments to help keep the people of Alberta and Canada safe and healthy.
The test kits’ technology depends on detecting the protein spikes that enable the new coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) to attach to the human cells and penetrate them.
Ogden Pharmacy provides these test kits for free to our communities to give insights into whether the cough or the body pain you have is from yesterday’s training or a COVID-19 infection.
