Fraser Health encourages residents to use online booking for COVID testing

There are 11 test collection centres operational, including in Abbotsford

If you need to get a COVID-19 test done, Fraser Health is offering online booking for its test collection centres.

The online booking tool can be found at fraserhealth.secureform.ca/index.php

Tests are available for people who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, and those who have been referred to testing by a doctor or Public Health. The Abbotsford collection site is located at University of the Fraser Valley (parking lot No. 10), 33844 King Rd. It’s open from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. seven days a week.

If you can’t get an appointment time in Abbotsford, Fraser Health encourages you to try to secure an appointment at a neighbouring test collection centre. Locations and hours of operation for alternative test collection centres are at the bottom of this article.

Fraser Health recommends checking the booking website often. Capacity will change as additional testing appointments are added throughout each day.

If you don’t want to use the website, you can call 604-587-3936 seven days a week between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

Walk-ins are possible if you can’t get an appointment anywhere, but wait times are unpredictable.
