​​​​Getting a code

GetCheckedOnline is currently available through six LifeL​abs in Vancouver, three LifeLabs on Vancouver Island and two LifeLabs in the BC Interior.  Promotional codes are needed to create a GetCheckedOnline account and are available through clinics and campaigns in each participating city or town.


If you live in the Greater Vancouver area, you can get a code through the BC Centre for Disease Control STI clinics and any Health Initiative for Men health centre.  You can either go to the clinic in person to pick up an information brochure with a code, or you can call the clinic and ask for a code. If you are a gay or bisexual man, you can also request a code through the Just Makes Sense​ website.
