Here is how to book an appointment:

Starting on May 25th, you will be able to book an appointment for your specimen collection online at /typo3conf/l10n/fr/rtehtmlarea/Resources/Private/Language/fr.locallang_accessibilityicons.xlf:external_link_new_window_altTextclicsante.ca or by calling 1 833 704-0087 (toll-free). Appointments will be available on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays for people aged 70 and over (except in Fermont), and on Tuesdays and Fridays for people aged 69 and under.

These measures are implemented to limit contacts between users. Zones will be disinfected between every appointment.
