When will my results be available and how will I receive them?

Welcome to “A Virtual Q&A with Shoppers Drug Mart Pharmacists”! Join our pharmacists as they answer your questions on various health and medication topics.

When will my results be available and how will I receive them?

You can expect to receive your results in about two to six days approximately. This can vary depending on lab capacity, but we usually do receive results within that time frame. Pharmacists at the pharmacy that have conducted the test will also be contacting their patients to communicate their test results, whether it's positive or negative. In the case of a positive result, do be aware that you will also be contacted by a member of public health to further instruct you on next steps. Another really quick and efficient way for individuals to receive their results is to sign up for the government’s My Health Records website. This allows individuals to see their results as soon as they are ready. You can do this by simply visiting: myhealthrecords.alberta.ca.

Whether you have questions about your prescription medications, over-the-counter products, immunizations, or other health concerns, our pharmacists are here to help.
