Providers of HIV Specialty Care in Vermont

You or your primary care provider can contact the HIV specialists at the Comprehensive Care Clinics in four locations around the state (Brattleboro, Burlington, Rutland and St. Johnsbury). The main office is located at the Infectious Disease Program at UVM Medical Center. In addition to providing HIV care, they have medical case managers available to help with Vermont Medication Assistance Program (VMAP) enrollment and ongoing support.

HIV Post-Exposure Prophylaxis

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

PEP should be used only in emergency situations and must be started within 72 hours after a recent possible exposure to HIV. If you think you’ve recently been exposed to HIV during sex or through sharing needles and works to prepare drugs or if you’ve been sexually assaulted, talk to your health care provider or an emergency room doctor about PEP right away.

Free Condoms

Consistent and correct use of condoms reduces the risk of STDs and HIV transmission. Your personal supply of free condoms are available at 28 locations throughout Vermont.
