Spain will cap prices for rapid coronavirus tests and open up its booster shot programme to everyone over the age of 18, the Health Minister said on Thursday, a day after data showed Omicron's rampant spread might be starting to slow.

Darias said that from Saturday antigen tests, which are only be available in pharmacies and not for sale in supermarkets, would sell for a maximum of 2.94 euros bringing prices closer in line with other European countries.

She added the interval between the last dose of the vaccine and the booster will be cut to five months from six months.

The rules on vaccine doses are constantly changing. Sorry but it doesn't fill me with confidence about the whole procedure. But I guess indemnity from compensation has that effect.

Convenient for them to look like 'the good guy' after 2 years of high prices, when the pandemic is turning a corner and testing will likely be told to stop anyway. Ahhh gotta love politics!! It really does give a good laugh from time to time!
