Jackson HIV Testing

Who should get tested for HIV?

According to the CDC, everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 should get tested for HIV at least once as part of routine health care. However, those who are at higher risk should get tested more often. This includes people who have had unprotected sex, shared needles, or have been diagnosed with, or sought treatment for, another sexually transmitted disease (STD). In Jackson, MS, this advice is especially relevant given the prevalence of HIV in the city and surrounding areas.

Importance of getting tested

Getting tested for HIV is crucial. Early detection allows for immediate treatment, which can significantly slow the progression of the disease and improve quality of life. It also helps prevent the spread of the virus to others. In Jackson, where HIV rates are higher than the national average, regular testing is particularly important.

HIV testing options in Jackson, MS

Urgent care and walk-in clinics

Urgent care and walk-in clinics offer convenient, same-day HIV testing. One such location is the MEA Spillway Clinic in nearby Brandon, MS. You can book same-day and next-day testing appointments at these clinics through Solv’s website and mobile app.

Primary care providers

Primary care providers also offer HIV testing. If you have a regular doctor, they can provide testing during routine checkups.

Free STD testing and community health centers

For those without insurance or who are unable to pay, free STD testing is available at community health centers. In Jackson, the Family Medical Clinic in Crystal Springs offers such services.

At-home testing

At-home HIV testing kits are also an option. These kits allow for privacy and convenience, and they can be ordered online or picked up at a local pharmacy.

Prevalence of HIV in Jackson

Jackson, located in Hinds County, has a higher prevalence of HIV compared to nearby counties such as Webster and Monroe. According to the CDC, the rate of HIV infections in Jackson has been rising over the past few years, contrasting with a decreasing trend in other parts of the country.

Risk factors related to HIV in Jackson

Certain risk factors contribute to the high prevalence of HIV in Jackson. These include high rates of unprotected sex, intravenous drug use, and a high prevalence of other STDs such as gonorrhea and chlamydia.

Other STDs in Jackson

In addition to HIV, Jackson has a high prevalence of other STDs including gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, and hepatitis. These STDs can increase the risk of contracting HIV, making regular testing for all STDs crucial for those at risk.

HIV Test FAQs

  • Who should get an HIV test?

    Everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 should take an HIV test at least once in their lives. Some people are more likely to get HIV and should be tested more regularly. Those who have had sex with an HIV-positive partner, those who inject drugs, sexually active gay men, and those who have unprotected sex are all included. You should get checked every 6-12 months if you have any of these risk factors.

  • How do they test for HIV?

    Antibodies created by your body in reaction to the virus are examined in HIV tests. A blood test or a sample of cells obtained from the inside of the cheek can be used to do this. After that, the sample is transported to a lab, where a technician will look for antibodies.

  • How long should I wait to get an HIV test?

    It can take a long time for your body to build enough antibodies for an HIV test to detect the illness if you become sick. It may take 3-12 weeks for your blood to contain adequate antibodies. Even if you have HIV, you could have a negative test result during this time.

  • How long will I have to wait for HIV test results in Jackson?

    Because the sample must be sent to a laboratory for investigation, most HIV test results might take anywhere from a few days to several weeks. On the other hand, some Jackson clinics or doctor's offices may offer rapid HIV testing, which can deliver a diagnosis in as little as 20 minutes. Rapid HIV testing involve a little sample of blood or fluid obtained from the mouth. You'll need a follow-up blood test to confirm the diagnosis if a fast test comes up positive.

  • How much does an HIV test cost?

    A variety of factors influence the cost of an HIV test, including the type of test you receive, the location where you are tested, and whether or not you have health insurance. HIV testing may be provided for free or at a low cost by some clinics or health authorities. If you're a college student, you might be able to get free HIV tests through your school.

  • Is HIV testing covered by my insurance?

    The majority of insurance coverage cover HIV testing. The Affordable Care Act mandates that all new health plans provide free HIV testing for those aged 15 to 65. If you have any doubts about what is covered under your individual health plan, you can always call your insurance company or go to their website.

  • Where can I get an HIV test in Jackson?

    Many Jackson health clinics, doctor's offices, and the health department offer HIV testing. Some pharmacies with on-site clinics may also be able to give HIV testing. Even though some clinics accept walk-in appointments, making an appointment ahead of time will save you time and ensure that you receive your test on the same day.

  • Can I get a same-day appointment for HIV testing?

    Yes, Solv offers same-day and next-day HIV testing appointments. We collaborate with thousands of healthcare providers across the country to make it easier for everyone to access the medical assistance they require quickly and conveniently. On our website, you can choose a physician near you and make an appointment right now.

Fill out the form to arrange an appointment at a time and location that is convenient for you. Make certain that your appointment is for "HIV testing."

  • Can I test myself for HIV at home?

    Although there are several home HIV tests available, not all of them are accurate or FDA-approved. For a home test, you'll need a swab from the inside of your mouth or a blood sample taken with a finger pricker. If you get a positive result on a home HIV test, you should see a doctor to confirm the diagnosis and start treatment.
