DOH-Volusia - No-Cost Rapid HIV Tests June 27 – National HIV Testing Day
June 16, 2017
"Everyone should take advantage of this opportunity to confirm their HIV status," said DOH-Volusia Administrator Patricia Boswell. "When a person knows their status, they can protect themselves and their partners."
Rapid HIV testing only requires a finger stick to collect a small drop of blood and produces results within 15 minutes. If test results indicate a blood draw is needed to confirm the rapid results, it also can be done at no-cost onsite, Boswell added.
Clients may remain anonymous for testing.
The Department also offers educational information on HIV transmission and protection and counseling. DOH-Volusia provides HIV treatment and services through the Ryan White Program for clients who qualify.
Appointments are not necessary. For more information, please call 386-274-0662.
