Free HIV Testing
Free HIV Testing
Vermont CARES offers Rapid HIV testing. The test is anonymous and uses an oral swab, not a blood draw. The Rapid HIV test gives accurate results in 20 minutes and is absolutely free.
Syringe Exchange
Syringe Exchange
As part of CARES’ on-going commitment to harm reduction and HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment, we began offering syringe exchange services out of our St. Johnsbury office.
