Do I need to take a Day 2 test even if I’m fully vaccinated?

How do I perform my sample?

What are the possible Day 2 Lateral Flow Test results?

Negative lateral flow test - You do not have any evidence of an active infection.

Positive lateral flow test - The Covid-19 virus has been detected on your swab.

Inconclusive/Needs Repeated - Very infrequently, your swab result will need to be repeated. This may occur due to poor sample taking techniques. If your result is inconclusive, we will offer you a replacement test.

What do I do if I test positive?

Anyone who receives a positive result from their lateral flow test will be required to self-isolate and to take a free PCR test to confirm the result.

Does the Day 2 Lateral Flow test include genomic sequencing?

No. Only PCR test results can be sequenced. All positive test results from day 2 Lateral Flow tests are reported to PHE and will be given a free follow up PCR test on the NHS. These PCR tests may then be sequenced to look for any potential new variants of Covid 19.

What happens if I don’t take a Day 2 test?

The Day 2 tests are mandatory for all arrivals entering the UK. Fully vaccinated travellers can take a Day 2 Lateral Flow Test. Unvaccinated and partially vaccinated travellers must take Day 2 and Day 8 PCR Tests . You may face a penalty if you fail to test for Covid-19 on or before day 2 of your arrival. Please see the UK government guidance for more information.
