Get tested in the comfort of your home in the District or at a lab in the DMV.
GetCheckedDC is Washington, DC’s new, free program that provides residents with confidential, convenient testing for both HIV and sexually transmitted diseases (STD).
Looking for free, fast, convenient lab testing for HIV, STD, or hepatitis? GetCheckedDC can help — even if you’re uninsured or underinsured for lab testing services.
Now, any DC resident can walk into a LabCorp patient service center in the DMV area, with or without an appointment, and get tested for free. Results are posted to GetCheckedDC's patient portal in about a week.
This new option provides an easy, confidential way for residents to get tested for HIV, STD, and hepatitis without having to visit a medical provider or a healthcare facility.
If you have concerns about getting tested or other sexual health matters, contact the DC Health and Wellness Center at (202) 741-7692.
If you think you have been exposed to HIV without any form of protection. Post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) can lower your chances of getting HIV. PEP must be taken within 72 hours (three days) after exposure to HIV.
If you are experiencing symptoms of an STD or if you were intimate with someone who has tested positive for an STD, get treatment immediately.
