Canadian pharmacists have a broad scope of practice that enables them to be at the forefront of patient care. As a result of the ongoging COVID-19 pandemic, a program has been launched in select Walmart stores to allow pharmacists to conduct Asymptomatic COVID-19 Testing for Canadians.
Our website will continue to be updated as more stores offer the program.
Prior to testing, individuals interested in Asymptomatic COVID-19 Testing will be screened by a pharmacist to assess eligibility.
Eligibility entails no known symptoms, no travel outside of Canada, and no prior exposure to COVID-19 within the last 14 days. Individuals who exhibit symptoms, who have travelled outside of Canada, or who may have been exposed to COVID-19 within the last 14 days will be referred to other COVID-19 protocols.
The testing consists of a throat or nasal swab performed by a trained pharmacist that is evaluated by a provincial lab.
In the event of a positive result, the individual will be connected to recommended care from their provincial health services where contact tracing will be performed.
