HIV and STD Tests

AltaMed offers confidential HIV and STD testing at our storefront locations, clinic site and in various community locations. We have a variety of testing options and can perform oral, blood draw, or finger-stick methods depending on your preference.

How does a Rapid HIV Test work?

Step 1: Fill out a questionnaire with our HIV testing counselor.

Step 2: A sample will be collected by swabbing around your mouth between your teeth and upper and lower gums.

Step 3: The sample from the device will be placed in a solution for 20 minutes.

Step 4: After 20 minutes your results will be read.
