What you can find in Health Gateway

Health Gateway helps you keep track of what's important to you and your health. It provides your health information in one place from databases across B.C. Here's some of the information you can get:

Lab results

Find results for blood tests, cervix or colon cancer screenings and other lab tests done in B.C. Results are available back to 2019.

Most lab results are available about 2 to 3 days after your test. Pathology tests, like a tissue biopsy, are available about 7 to 10 days after your test. This gives your health care provider time to review and interpret the results.


Medications

Look up what medications you got from B.C. pharmacies. Information is available back to 1995. You can check the drug manufacturer, dosage and directions for use.


Immunization history

View immunizations you received from B.C. public health clinics or pharmacies. Parents and guardians can also add a dependent on the Health Gateway website to see immunizations for their children 11 years and younger. You can print them for school registration or other places that require it. This option is not available on the mobile app yet.

Health Gateway only shows vaccination records that are in the Provincial Immunization Registry.

  • This includes vaccinations from public health clinics and pharmacies in B.C. If you got vaccinated at a pharmacy, try searching your medications, too
  • It does not include vaccinations from family practices or travel clinics

Health visits

Look up consultations or procedures. Keep track of details by making your own private notes on records. Only health visits billed to the BC Medical Services Plan (MSP) are included.


Special Authority requests

Check if your Special Authority request for coverage of a drug, medical supply or device has been processed and approved. Requests submitted since March 2021 are included.


COVID-19 PCR test results

Access COVID-19 test results as soon as they're available. 

  • Sign up for notifications to get a text or email when your results are ready
  • Parents and guardians can add a dependent to their Health Gateway account so that they can access COVID-19 test results for their children 11 years old and younger
  • Visit the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) website to see all available options for getting a test result

COVID-19 proof of vaccination

Download your federal proof of vaccination or BC Vaccine Card. Have your proof ready for travel or to access events and services that require it.

You can also get proof of vaccination for yourself or your family without logging in.

Update your COVID-19 vaccine record

Add a COVID-19 vaccination from outside of B.C. or correct an error in your COVID-19 vaccination record.
