Clinical Services Update - June 5, 2020:
The BCCDC Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) Clinic at 655 West 12th Avenue in Vancouver will continue to offer limited and essential services only until the fall due to clinical staff supporting COVID-19 related activities. Services available include:
- Assessment of symptomatic individuals;
- Treatment for STIs;
- Treatment and testing for contacts to STIs;
- HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) care (initial assessment and follow-up care);
- HIV post-exposure prophylaxis care (initial assessment and follow-up care).
Visits for routine STI screening and other non-urgent appointments will not be available in-person until the fall. For patients wanting to have routine STI testing now, you may be interested in the Get Checked Online (GCO) service
What is Get Checked Online?
It’s an easy way to test for sexually transmitted infections (STI) in British Columbia. In a few steps you can create a lab form, go to a participating Lifelabs site to give your samples and get your results online or over the phone.
Who can use it?
GCO is operated by the BC Centre for Disease Control. It is available in Vancouver and a few select communities on Vancouver Island and in the BC Interior. You will need a valid promotional code to create an account, but you do not require a BC health card. Click on the link above for more information about GCO and how to request a promotional code.
We kindly ask that you contact us after September 1st if you are wanting to book an appointment for a routine STI screening or other non-urgent appointment. If you feel you need to be seen by a clinician, please call our STI nursing line at 604-707-5603 to discuss current options for assessment. The Bute St. Clinic remains closed at this time.
