Pass Sanitaire & TGV Travel/ Covid Testing in Lyon

I am travelling with my daughter to Lyon and then to the French Alps next month. Will I need a Pass Sanitaire to travel on the TGV train to Moutiers or is my proof of vaccination from the US acceptable? If I do need a Pass Sanitaire, where could I get this between the Lyon airport and the Part-Dieu train station from which we leave? ( I do realize these passes are necessary for eating in a restaurant.) Also, upon our return to Lyon on a Saturday we will need to find a place to have a Covid Rapid Antigen Test and have the result within a couple of hours. Searching for this online is confusing. Any suggestions? We could get the test at the airport before flying out Sunday midday, but I was concerned about the lines (they open at 8am). Many thanks for any information people would have for us.

You will need a pass vaccinal to travel on the TGV or dine in cafés or restaurants. Present your vaccination record, to include the 3rd shot (the booster) to almost any pharmacist and for 36€, he will issue you the required QR codes which you may scan into the TousAntiCovid app.

You can schedule an Antigen test at almost any pharmacy or medical lab. Cost is 25€. You may find location or schedule a test using

You shouldn't have any trouble finding a pharmacy in Lyon that can give you an antigen test on the Saturday. You will receive your results in 15 minutes.

Pharmacies offering the test are all over the place.
