COVID-19 testing is becoming challenging to find and many retailers are running low or completely out of at home tests. The Philadelphia Health Department is making getting tested easier by distributing 24,000 free COVID rapid at home tests at pop up vaccine clinics during the week of December 20th.

Philadelphia residents can receive two test kits, each containing two tests. You don’t need to be vaccinated or get vaccinated to receive them.

The testing kits are only available for Philadelphia residents.

Philly residents can pick up the free rapid at-home COVID test kits at the following sites:
