Those who have declined vaccination should pay for rapid tests, says Health Minister

From the moment unvaccinated citizens decided against the COVID-19 vaccine, they should have to pay for their rapid tests, said on Saturday Health Minister Michalis Hadjipantelas.

In statements after a visit to the Emergency Room of Nicosia General Hospital, the Minister said that the decision to start charging citizens for rapid tests from 1st of August was taken after all information was examined. So far, we have paid 26 million euros for the rapid tests, excluding all other costs, he noted.
