The maximum price of antigen tests in pharmacies: 2.94 euros. This was agreed this Thursday morning at the meeting of an inter-ministerial commission. The measure will be published this Friday in the Official State Gazette and will enter into force on Saturday.

To set the price of the pots at 2.94 euros, the average sale prices of the week before Christmas and September have been taken as a reference. They have also considered prices in the environment. The product is exempt from VAT.

Antigen tests began selling in pharmacies last July, and no price limit was set. The Spanish executive asked the pharmaceutical industry to have the tests affordable for consumers.

Two years after the start of the pandemic, the Spanish government has addressed the issue, after high demand during the Christmas holidays has meant that, in some cases, it has come to pay 30 euros for one of these diagnostic tests in pharmacies.

Sanitat has also approved the third dose of the VOCID vaccine for the entire population over the age of 18. Until now it was open to those over 40 years of age.
