What Is An HIV Test?
An HIV test looks for signs of HIV in your body. When you get tested for HIV, you will usually give a sample of blood, but there are other kinds of HIV tests that use urine or a swab of fluids from your mouth instead. Some tests take a few days for results, but rapid HIV tests can give results in about 20 minutes.

Where Can I Get an HIV Test?
Many places offer HIV tests. Here are some great ways to find an HIV testing location near you:
  • Use the HIV Prevention and Services Locator on the right side of your screen. Just enter your ZIP code and you'll get a map that shows you nearby testing locations (click the link below to start).
  • Visit HIVtest.org. Enter your ZIP code and you'll get a list of HIV testing sites, including those that offer free HIV tests.
  • Call 1-800 CDC-INFO (1-800-232-4636).
  • Text your ZIP code to KNOWIT (566948) and you'll receive a message in reply that lists the nearest testing locations.
  • Contact your state or local health department.

You can also ask your healthcare provider for an HIV test. Many medical clinics, substance abuse programs, community health centers, and hospitals offer them too.
