STI Klinic

Please note: While Manitoba is at Critical level (red) on the Pandemic Response System Klinic Community Health is reducing services to only those that are deemed essential. As a result access to this service may be impacted. More information is available on our COVID-19 Services Page.

Operations Update

We have reshaped our STI Klinic experience to add some protection for patients and staff from COVID-19 while still providing services.

We are prioritizing patients who:

  • Have symptoms of a sexually transmitted infection (STI)
  • Have a sexual partner with an STI
  • Have been asked by public health to come in for testing or treatment
  • Need testing and/or emergency contraception after a high risk exposure (sexual assault/condom broke)

There are limited appointments available for:

  • Routine testing without symptoms
  • Immunizations (Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, HPV)

We are not offering walk-in service at this time.  Please call to book an appointment (204-784-4090).  Hours are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 4:00-7:30 and Fridays from 9:30- 3:00.  We do not have Saturday hours at this time.

If you haven’t been to the clinic recently, you will see many new safety measures in place at your next visit:

  • Masks are mandatory for all staff and clients
  • Symptom screening and hand sanitizer at entry for all visitors
  • Physical distancing in the waiting room and increased cleaning of high-touch surfaces

What to expect in the exam room:

  • You will be placed in an exam room and a health care provider will talk to you by phone first. We will provide a phone if you do not have one.
  • We will come in to the exam room after the phone call for anything that needs to be done in-person (exam, specimen collection, treatments).

How to get your results:

  • We will call you with any abnormal results within 2 weeks. We do not call you if all your results are negative.
  • If you have not heard from us and want to speak with us about your results you can leave a message at 204-784-4046.

Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, our goal is to provide you with non-judgmental, sex positive health care. Let us know if you have suggestions to improve our service.
