Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) Clinic

The Calgary STI clinic offers comprehensive STI services and is a walk-in only clinic open Monday to Friday, and Saturdays that are not connected to a long weekend. As the demand for service is high, patients may experience longer wait times at the clinic. The clinic also prioritizes patients most in need and some patients are not always seen in the order they present to the clinic. All patients will be expected to mask and complete a COVID screen upon arrival at the clinic.

STI Clinic Process:

  • accepts walk-ins only
  • all clients are pre-screened for COVID-19 symptoms and exposure, no one is refused care based on this screen
  • due to high demand, please expect to wait to be seen

    - patients with a known STI and require treatment
    - contact to a known STI and require testing/treatment
