STI Express Testing

Express Testing is a convenient and fast way to get routine STI/HIV tests. This service is available for chlamydia, gonorrhea, HIV, syphilis and Hepatitis C. When you arrive:

• You will fill out a short questionnaire at the clinic to determine which tests will be offered. Please arrive 5 minutes prior to your appointment time to complete the questionnaire.

• Express testing appointments are booked every 20 minutes so if you arrive late we may need to reschedule your appointment.

• A medical lab assistant will provide testing kits and instructions on how to self-collect swabs from the throat, rectum, and/or vagina (internal genitals).

• You will not be seeing a nurse during this appointment.

If any of the following applies to you, then express testing is NOT for you and we recommend calling the clinic to book an appointment with a nurse:

• Experiencing symptoms of an STI.

• You have been told by a partner or public health nurse that you are a contact to an STI and you require testing and treatment.

• You have had a recent condomless encounter and are wanting to access HIV Post-Exposure Prophylaxis or emergency contraception.

• You are not comfortable with self-collection of swabs from the throat, rectum and/or vagina (internal genitals).

• You would like to speak to a nurse for any other reason.

Please call 604-707-5600 during main clinic hours to book – by appointment only.
