Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI) & HIV Testing

Drop-in clinics operate on a first come first served basis. Public Health reserves the right to limit the number of clients during these clinics

You can access our services through the drop-in clinic, booked ahead or same day appointments. Please call us at 519-883-2267!

Testing is the only way to know for certain if you have a sexually transmitted infection (STI). Some STIs do not cause symptoms and you could pass them on if you don't know you are infected.

Our clinics provide testing, treatment, education and referrals for sexually transmitted infection, including HIV testing. All services are free and confidential. No health card is required. You can make an appointment by calling 519-883-2267 or go to a drop-in clinic. The hours are shown below.

We also offer:

  • Access to birth control methods and pap tests (for 24-year olds and under)
  • Follow-up on post-therapeutic abortion
  • Treatment for genital warts (HPV)

Region of Waterloo Public Health clinics are LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer/Questioning) positive; sex trade workers are welcome.

Note: Hepatitis B vaccine is available free to individuals with sexual and/or needle-sharing risk factors. Free condoms are also available.
