Community pharmacies across the district have begun offering the test kits as part of a new Pharmacy Collect service.
The lateral flow test kits, which are available to anyone who does not have coronavirus symptoms and provide results in 30 minutes, can no be collected for free from pharmacies across Wakefield and West Yorkshire.
Kiran Verdi, from The Pharmacy Group in Alwoodley, Leeds said: “As a community pharmacist, I am really excited about starting the Pharmacy Collect service. Our pharmacy has been offering public health services for several years and my patients have been extremely positive about these.
