There should be an expiration date on the box.

@Luvsmyfam Look on the back down at the bottom in reeeeally tiny print. There are 3 lines and one of them is the expiration date.

 

I don't know why "they" made it so dang hard to see. I had to go on my city's FB page I'm on and ask and it seems this is a common"thing"!! I have a magnifier and had to use that to find the date.

I have been buying them and I noticed that six months seem to be the average before they expire.

 

They don't last very long.

I have just my original set of 2; they don't expire until mid-November.  I would think that's as long as I would want them to be until such time that the virus stops spiraling into a new form every few months.

 

  Already since these hit my home, there's been a new strain.  We get a new flu vaccine every year because over the years the medical scientists have figured out that's often enough to keep the vast majority of us safe.  

Let's hope they can also catch up to this virus and formulate a vaccine that will work.

@millieshops   I got mine in the very first batch they sent out and they expire July 4th.  Doubt I'd ever use them, so it really doesn't matter.

We used one today as DD wasn't feeling well.  She tested positive so we sent her to get a rapid PCR test and she indeed is positive.
