Where to get a PCR test in Paris

Hi all. My wife and I are in Paris and will be returning to Canada in a few days and require a PCR test. Does anyone know where we can get one done near Sorbonne? Also if there is a cost, how much and is an appointment required. Thanks in advance.

PCR tests for foreigners not on the French health system cost €44.

I would ask your hotel for assistance, making sure they understand that it is a PCR test that you need. They will have gotten used to Americans needing help finding antigen tests, which are on every street corner.

We ret urned from Paris in September and found you had to go to a laboratoire to get our. The pharmacies do not usually do pcr tests. We stayed in the 9th and asked at the local pharmacy and told us where it was. Easy peasy no line up unless you go in the. Morning when people come for blood tests. They get priority. Search laboratoire in yr arrondisemant and a bunch will come up.
