Opposition leads the call for Rapid Antigen Test to be free and accessible.

6.6 million concession cardholders are eligible for free rapid antigen tests in pharmacies across Australia that started 24th of January 2022. 

For Riza Morales of Melbourne who doesn't have a concession card, she needs to buy the RAT kits from her own pocket. But up to now, she's still struggling to find one in local pharmacies so she opted to buy overseas.
