HIV/ Hepatits C Testing

HIV/Hepatitis C Testing Services

FYI provides free and confidential HIV Testing, Hepatitis C Testing, Counseling, and Linkage to Care

We are providing testing services by appointment and with a preliminary Covid health questionnaire before testing services are provided.  

The only way to know for sure whether you have HIV or Hepatitis C is to get tested. The CDC recommends that everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 get tested at least once as part of routine health care. Getting tested gives you powerful information to help you take steps to keep you and your partner(s) healthy.

You are considered high risk for HIV if you answer “yes” to any of the following questions:

  • Are you a man who has had sex with another man?
  • Have you had sex—anal or vaginal—with an HIV-positive partner?
  • Have you had more than one sex partner?
  • Have you injected drugs and shared needles or works (for example, water or cotton) with others?
  • Have you exchanged sex for drugs or money?
  • Have you been diagnosed with, or sought treatment for, another sexually transmitted disease?
  • Have you been diagnosed with or treated for hepatitis or tuberculosis (TB)?
  • Have you had sex with someone who could answer “yes” to any of the above questions or someone whose sexual history you don’t know?

People who inject drugs who have shared needles or other injection equipment, including cookers, cotton, and measuring syringes, are at the highest risk of being infected with Hepatitis C.

About 1 in 7 people in the United States who have HIV do not know they have it, and 3 out of 4 people infected with Hepatitis C do not know their status. Know yours! Get tested! All services are free and confidential.
