Public Health Mobile Unit

The Public Health Mobile Unit (PHMU) brings COVID-19 services to communities across the province. The fleet is staffed by a collaborative team of Public Health Nurses, Emergency Support Aides, Administrative Professionals and Drivers. They provide PCR testing, give out rapid test kits, and help people find answers to their questions about COVID-19. Some PHMU clinics also offer COVID-19 vaccination – please check the listings below to see if this applies to a clinic in your community. You can check your eligibility for a COVID-19 vaccine at

People are welcome to drop in to PHMU clinics for testing, with or without an appointment. You can book an appointment online, or call 811.

Please complete the Report and Support form if you are booking a PCR test or have a positive rapid test. You can also complete the form by calling 1-833-797-7772.
