Looking for an STI test and don't want to come into the clinic?

If you have MSP, book a virtual appointment with a doctor or nurse, and we will fax your lab requisition to Lifelabs for urine and blood tests. Most STI tests can be done at a Lifelabs location, however some need to be done in person at a clinic. Your health care provider will discuss options with you at your appointment.
 
Note: we do not take blood for tests at our health clinics.
 
If you don't have MSP, you can still make an appointment and connect with us for testing or more information, or visit this website.
 
Always check with your health insurance provider as you may be eligible for reimbursement of funds for any lab costs. You may need to see a clinic physician to be eligible.

Medical tests and screening

Pap/Smear tests

A pap or smear test is used to screen and help diagnose precancerous conditions of the internal sexual and reproductive health organs (cervix, vagina, rectum). 

Anyone with a cervix between the ages of 25 and 69 should be screened for cervical cancer every three years. Read more about cervical cancer screening here.

Most types of internal genital cancers can be prevented by getting your HPV vaccine.

We are once again offering Gardasil-9 (HPV Vaccine) at $170.00/dose. This is a series of 3 doses recommended. Book an appointment with a nurse or speak to a nurse about any questions you may have by calling us at 778.782.4615. 

If you have not completed your HPV vaccine series, you may be eligible for a publicly funded vaccine. View our vaccine webpage for more information.
