UPDATE: CLINIC CLOSED ON THURSDAY JUNE 13TH FROM 2:00PM ONWARDS.

To book an appointment, please call 604-707-5600.

A limited number of drop-in appointments are available from Monday to Friday (Saturdays are by appointment only). We will do our best to accommodate drop-ins, but are not able to guarantee availability. Appointments are recommended.

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.

• 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.

Express Testing is drop-in only from Tuesday to Friday and by appointment only on Saturdays (call 604-707-5600 during clinic hours to book). Please be aware that drop-in capacity may be reached before closing time depending on demand.
