Information for You

HIV post-exposure prophylaxis, or PEP, means taking antiretroviral medicines (ART) after being potentially exposed to HIV to prevent becoming infected.

Sterile syringes are available at pharmacies throughout Vermont without a prescription, although individual pharmacists may choose not to sell them.

Consistent and correct use of the male latex condom reduces the risk of STDs and HIV transmission. Free condoms are available at all 12 Health Department locations across Vermont.

People at highest risk for HIV infection may be able to secure a free HIV test through the Comprehensive Care Clinics (Vermont providers of HIV specialty care) or through the Community Health Cente

We support free HIV testing at a range of community sites. These sites also offer referral and links to prevention interventions that may help you stop the spread of HIV.

We want you to see how we're planning to assess and improve health in Vermont. Our State Health Assessment (SHA) and State Health Improvement Plan (SHIP) are up for review and renewal this year.
