    HIV Testing Banner

    There are more than a dozen testing sites for HIV and STDs located in community and commercial venues throughout the Denver-Metro area. Regardless of where you happen to be when you'd like to get tested, there's a convenient location for you.

    Jefferson County Public Health offers screening, diagnosis and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) at our Arvada and Lakewood locations.

    Getting an HIV Test

    A certified test-site counselor will go over your risks and answer your questions. The counselor will work with you to develop a plan to reduce or eliminate your risk factors.

    • You may choose to have a "rapid test" involving a finger-stick and receive results during the visit or
    • You may choose a "blood draw" test, in which a small blood sample is taken and sent to the lab for testing. You will need to return within seven to 10 days to receive your results.

    Important Test Details

    • Tests are only conducted one-on-one, and you can change your mind about testing at any time.
    • Results are only given in person.
    • There is no fee for an HIV test; however, individuals requiring documentation of test results will be charged a $30 administrative fee.

     

    Confidential testing

    When you have a confidential test, you provide your name, address and phone number to the test-site counselor; this information is kept in your file.

    Any information collected is protected and used to help plan effective prevention efforts.

    Note: Confidential testing allows you to have written documentation of your test result if needed. 

     Please call 303-232-6301 to make an appointment to get testes.
