How it works
GetCheckedOnline is a free and confidential online sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing service offered by the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC). To learn how it works, watch this video:
To get started follow these steps:
Create an account. Enter a
code to set up your account. You will be asked to provide some personal information, including name, date of birth, gender, city and phone number.
Give samples at a lab. Answer the assessment questions to create a lab form, and take it to a participating Lab Location. You can print the form, or it can be scanned from your phone. At the lab, you will give a blood and/or urine sample, and may be given a swab kit.
Get your test results. You will receive an email from GetCheckedOnline letting you know when your test results are ready online through your account. If any of your results are positive or inconclusive, a nurse will contact you.
Who can use it?
We have participating Lab Locations in Vancouver, Maple Ridge, Victoria, Duncan, Kamloops, Kimberley and Nelson in British Columbia.
Testing is free, you do not need to show ID, and you don’t need to have a BC Care Card. You will need a code to create your account; visit Getting a Code to find out how.
When should I use GetCheckedOnline?
GetCheckedOnline is a good option for STI testing when:
We recommend you see a health care provider for assessment when:
- You have symptoms, such as discharge, pain, itching, or sores on the genitals.
- You had sex with someone who has an STI.
- You need tests that GetCheckedOnline does not offer.
- You want support after sexual assault.
- You need a printed copy of your test results with your name on it.
If you need a printed copy of your test results, you can test in person at the BCCDC STI clinic, a public health or walk-in clinic, or at your family doctor. You will need to show ID when testing and picking up your results.
