COVID-19 community information

Accessing free rapid antigen tests

We are now assisting SA Health to provide access to free RATs through some of our community centres and customer service centres.

This program is now targeted at vulnerable groups to support early testing and where appropriate antiviral treatment for those most at risk of severe disease.

More information is available on the SA Health website.

Free rapid antigen tests are available for:

  • people with disability or who are immunocompromised
  • a carer of someone with disability or who is immunocompromised
  • eligible Concession Card holders (including Pensioner Concession Card, Health Care Card, Commonwealth Seniors Health Card and Department of Veterans Affairs Concession Card)

Residents do not need to register before collecting free rapid antigen tests, but they will be required to show an eligible concession card.

No personal information will be recorded and up to 5 RATs will be provided to each eligible person.

Rats are available from the following sites:

  • Elizabeth House
  • Wakefield House
  • Neporendi Centre
  • Aldinga Community Centre
  • Woodcroft Morphett Vale Neighbourhood Centre
  • Noarlunga Customer service centre  

A mask will be required when accessing free rapid antigen tests from RAT Collection Points. Avoid attending if you have COVID-19 symptoms.


  • If you have cold or flu symptoms, seek testing and stay home until you are well
  • Wash your hands often, wipe frequently touched surfaces, and cover coughs and sneezes
  • Keep 1.5 metres distance from others
  • Vulnerable people like the elderly and people with chronic health conditions should talk to their doctor about what is appropriate for them.
