Back to school
As we say goodbye to summer and transition into fall, it's a time of fresh starts for many people. This is especially true if you're going back to school.
In BC, Chlamydia is the most common bacterial sexually transmitted infection (STI) among 14 to 24 year olds. But the good news is that it's simple and painless to test for, and easy to treat.
If you've been busy this summer, then it's a good time to add "STI testing" to your back to school to-do list. Use our clinic finder to locate a youth clinic near you. And don't forget to pick up some free condoms while you're there!
Hi At the BCCDC, we do not use an automated phone system to reach people. We make three attempts to reach people, usually with two phone calls which are followed by a letter if we have an address, or an email if we have that information. When we call, we do not give any information about specific STIs, nor do we tell you who gave us your name as a contact. We identify ourselves as a nurse...
