PEP or Post-Exposure Prophylaxis is a medication regimen that you can take if you believe you have just been exposed to HIV. If you take PEP as directed within 3 days after exposure, it can prevent HIV from infecting your body. If you had unprotected sex with or been exposed to the blood from someone you think may be HIV positive, please visit the Walk-In Clinic and ask to speak to a Health Educator, who will assist you with your visit.
PrEP or Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis is a medication that can reduce your risk of getting HIV. If you take PrEP as directed, it can reduce the chance that HIV will be able to infect your body. A once-daily pill is available for patients seeking PrEP.
