Huntington –  Marshall Health, in collaboration with the Cabell-Huntington Health Department and the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources , will offer free HIV tests and COVID-19 vaccines Saturday.

The event takes place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at CHHD's Office on 7th Ave. The testing and vaccines are free (insurance will not be billed) and quick. No appointments are necessary.  There is no age restriction for the confidential HIV tests (parental consent is not required by law), but individuals must be 18 or older to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

Free TTA bus transportation to the health department is available and swag bags will be distributed while supplies last.

“For the health of our entire community, it’s important to continue HIV testing and COVID-19 vaccinations,” said Dr. Andrea Lauffer, Marshall Health pediatrician and medical director for Cabell County Schools, in a University-issued press release.
