Where to get an Antigen certificate?

I note that the Greek govt website stipulates that:

Quote:
As of May 14th, travelers arriving in Greece are required to have either a negative PCR certificate from a testing laboratory, for a Covid-19 test taken no later than 72 hours before arrival or a negative antigen (rapid) certificate taken no longer than 48 hours before arrival.
This test is mandatory for all tourists (including children over the age of 12), regardless of the epidemiological situation in the country of departure.
I wasn't aware such a thing existed as these appear to be DIY tests.
Do pharmacies offer such a service?

yes - you can schedule and choose the type of test using the onedoc.ch tool - or most all local pharmacies can do it.

However - I just got back from Greece, and if you are vaccinated there is no need for a test. (at least last week)

They are the same tests as the DIY - but administered by a "professional" so you can't cheat or mess up doing the tests.

Out of interest, just checked this site and it lists less than 10% of the options in my town. Missing are the hospital, at least 5 doctors practices and 4 chemists. If you went by this app, you’d mistakenly thing there were no slots available. So don’t assume it’s a comprehensive source.
