COVID Testing Centres: No referral needed– where to get tested, booked appointments now required

If you are booking for a COVID testing appointment at Mackenzie Health Richmond Hill, booking thru MyChart will be more efficient than calling. If you have severe symptoms, please go to the nearest Emergency Department immediately.

Another option, is Vaughan Urgent Care Clinic (VUCC) – an extension of Mackenzie Health Emergency Department.  It is like a walk-in clinic, and they provide care for injuries, cuts, fractures, non-life threatening illness and disease, in addition to seeing those with Flu-like symptoms, and can do COVID testing also. They are open from 4 pm – 10 pm on weekdays and 10 am to 4 pm on weekend and holidays.  No appointments booked. The address is 9401 Jane Street, north of Rutherford in Vaughan.
