Dept. of Health offers free confidential HIV test

The McHenry County Department of Health is offering free confidential or anonymous rapid HIV testing.

The testing is done by appointment only by calling 815-334-4500. The test consists of a small finger-stick blood sample and results are available in less than 20 minutes so residents can quickly learn their HIV status. Individuals are also assessed for risk factors and provided educational material.  

MCDH also offers affordable testing for sexually transmitted infections (STI) and Hepatitis C by appointment only (815-334-4500). Visit http://aids.gov/hiv-aids-basics for more information.
