USPS Covid-19 rapid test kits-free

The USPS is mailing out free rapid home test kits when you sign up on their special website: https://store.usps.com/store/results...questid=377312

They send out 8 kits, each kit has 2 tests. You can order and get 8 up to three times. Wait until you need more to reorder as they expire fairly quickly (year or less).

CVS and Walgreens also have free home test kits. Simular program.

We found that the ones we get via USPS have a short expiration date compared to the ones you can get at the major pharmacies.

Those we've rec'd thru USPS have all had expiry dates <90 days and were made in China. Tossed them. Can't figure out how to stop the mailing program once started.

Those we've rec'd through WalGreens had 9 - 12 months expiry. Made in San Diego and Salt Lake (we think) Only needed for travel or symptoms, so used as purchased. Never had symptoms.

The expiration date has been modified on most brands: https://www.fda.gov/medical-devices/...agnostic-tests

From CNBC (No political connotation intended)

"The government will end its giveaway of Covid-19 at-home tests Friday because of insufficient congressional funding, a senior Biden administration official said Sunday."

(RVM-14) It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Well it finally got me. I managed to dodge this crap for over two and a half years, but on Monday I felt like I was getting a chest cold, on Tuesday I tested positive at home and had my Dr call in a script for Paxlovid. On Wednesday I got a confirmation test at a drive-up Walgreens and started the Paxlovid. No idea when or where I was exposed, but probably at the office. Being fully vaxxed and boosted helps a lot, and the Paxlovid has already mostly eliminated the symptoms. Hopefully by Sunday I'll test negative, but it still sucks.

wyocamper, not saying it will happen to you, but some who take Paxlovid have a rebound after finishing the drug and test positive again. It happened to Pres. Biden and his wife.

Thanks Ray, I'm aware and more or less expecting it.

Back in July we both came down with it. Me first the DW. Doctor prescribed Paxlovid for her and said I was beyond help 'cause I had covid for to many days.

Symptoms were slight sniffles. Thought I just had my allergies.


No more free samples.
