Pharmacy Testing Program
The VDH Pharmacy Testing Program is live once again. Thank you for your patience while we re-established these important services. This program is a partnership between:
- the Virginia Pharmacy Association, and
- select local pharmacies.
Testing services are now available at select pharmacies throughout Virginia. This includes rapid HIV and hepatitis C virus (HCV) testing.
Testing results are available in around 20 minutes.
Each pharmacy that offers testing has different hours. Please note these hours before visiting. You may walk into any participating location to receive a test during the hours listed. However, walk-ins may experience a wait time if pharmacists are busy. To avoid wait times, you may call the pharmacy and schedule an appointment to be tested. Some pharmacies may have an online appointment page.
No ID or insurance is required. Testing is free at all pharmacy locations listed. Adults and minors 13 years of age and older may consent to HIV and HCV testing in Virginia.
Find a pharmacy location near you on the state map below. When you click on the pin on the map, all details of the location will show up. Location details include those from Google, as well as program information such as testing hours. If the location has an online appointment page that is also included.

Pharmacists will provide referrals to other services. Referrals could be for PrEP for HIV, or other HIV and viral hepatitis prevention needs.
If you test positive, you will need to have your results confirmed. Confirmatory testing will determine current infection or infection status. Pharmacists will help link you to an agency of your choice to confirm these results.
Referrals for medical care and support services will also be offered.
