Free HIV Testing at Walgreen’s – Yonkers

Tuesday, June 13th, 2023
We can end HIV. It's National HIV Testing Day.It’s National HIV Testing Day!
 
Why it matters: If you know your HIV status, you can act accordingly. If you’re negative, take steps to stay negative such as safer sex, harm reduction, going on PrEP, and talking about safety with partners. If you’re positive, engage with and stay in medical care to stay healthy and lower your HIV viral load. If you’re undetectable, you can’t spread HIV. undetectable = untransmittable! #UequalsU
 
It all starts with knowing your HIV status. If you don’t know and it’s been more than 6 months, it’s time to get tested.
 
We’ll be offering FREE HIV oral swab testing at Walgreen’s in Poughkeepsie and Yonkers on Tuesday, June 27th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
