Are you afraid of having blood drawn? No problem!
Do you have difficulty getting to a blood collection clinic? No problem!
Worried about other people knowing you are being tested? No problem!
RECAP’s Hepatitis Engagement Program has you covered!
COVID-19 guidelines will be followed. Masks are mandatory. Please be patient to give us time to clean between each visit.
Wednesdays (times may vary) at Compass Clinic in Prince Edward Square.
Thursdays 9-12 at Avenue B.
We have partnered with the Human Development Council and the By Names List to provide quick access to testing through local housing agencies. At your request or as part of the intake process your housing agency can complete a referral to arrange hepatitis C testing at a location convenient for you. You can set up an appointment at RECAP, one of our community clinics, a community partner, or a location that meets your needs.
How do we test?
At RECAP gone are the days where you have to have blood drawn to find out your hepatitis C status. Using just a poke of your finger and a couple drops of blood we can tell you!
Unable to access testing in person? No problem!
Did you know we can send a hepatitis C testing kit to your home?
Call, text, or email us or fill out the form above to request your kit. One of our team members will complete an intake and mail you your at-home testing kit with a unique identifier for you to complete when it is best for you. The kit comes with instructions and a video to walk you through how to perform the test. Our team is also available to set up virtual (telephone or zoom) appointments to assist you in completing your test. Using the same card we can also test you for HIV and syphilis if you would like.
It is just 5 drops of blood on a card! Easy!
When you have completed the test, let it dry, put it in the prepaid Canada Post envelope and pop it into any red Canada post box!
That is it! Our team will be in contact with your results and a plan!
