PrEP and PEP
Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) is a daily pill or monthly injection that can reduce the risk of HIV infection. If you are at risk of HIV exposure, make an appointment to discuss if PrEP should be part of your health care routine. Change Point is currently scheduling new PrEP appointments.

Change Point also offer Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP), medication which can prevent HIV infection if taken within 72 hours of a possible HIV exposure event. Call to speak with a team member for more information.

STI Testing
Change Point offers chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis testing by appointment only. Call the clinic to schedule.

Rapid HIV/Hep C testing
