Legacy makes it easy with FREE, walk-in HIV testing

HIV is still on the rise in the south and one out of every 200 Houstonians is living with HIV. Prevention and treatment can help end the spread of HIV, and it starts with knowing your HIV status. Testing is the only way to know if you have HIV.

Legacy offers FREE, FAST and CONFIDENTIAL HIV testing at convenient locations across Greater Houston and Beaumont, many with walk-in options. And no matter what your test results are, Legacy is here to help you protect your health with affordable prevention and treatment options.

PrEP for HIV Prevention – Available Same-Day!

Pre-exposure prophylaxis, known as PrEP, is a once-daily pill that significantly reduces your risk of acquiring HIV. Legacy offers same-day PrEP appointments to help provide the protection you need in one convenient visit!

Simply walk into the Legacy Montrose, Fifth Ward or Beaumont Clinics, Monday to Friday, no appointment needed. You’ll meet with one of our expert health care providers who can help you decide if PrEP is right for you and quickly get started. The visit will also include lab testing. PrEP is available at low or no cost to most individuals. Our eligibility specialists are available to assess your financial situation and find assistance programs available to you. PrEP can be available the same day or next depending upon the location and timing of the visit.

Once you’ve started PrEP, you’ll be referred to our Pharmacy PrEP program which makes it easy to continue PrEP by coordinating lab testing, refills and follow-up visits in one convenient appointment with a Pharmacist.

Stop by Legacy Montrose, Fifth Ward or Beaumont Clinics, or call (713) 814 3300 to learn more, or click here to request a callback.

nPEP to Prevent HIV Infection after Potential Exposure

nPEP, or post-exposure prophylaxis, is a medical intervention designed to prevent HIV infection after exposure to the virus. Prophylaxis for HIV is only available with a prescription.

nPEP is strongly recommended for anyone who has had unprotected receptive vaginal or anal intercourse or who has shared an IV needle with an HIV-infected partner or with a partner whose HIV status is unknown. nPEP is rarely recommended for the insertive (“top”) partner or for oral sex. nPEP is usually taken twice a day for 28 days, and includes laboratory tests and follow-up visits at 2 weeks, 4-6 weeks, 12 weeks, and 24 weeks post-exposure. The use of condoms is recommended until the final follow-up visit (six months post-exposure). nPEP is not guaranteed to work and you could put your partner(s) at risk of contracting HIV. nPEP is not a substitute for safer sex.

For more information on nPEP, call (713) 814 3300

HIV Treatment

Legacy’s trusted health care professionals are here to help patients living with HIV start and stay on treatment—and live longer and healthier lives. Our team includes physicians, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, social workers, prevention counselors and patient educators, each of whom is an expert in their specialty. Our comprehensive services include primary health care, case management, educational workshops, eye care, financial assistance, medication adherence counseling and wellness services.

Treatment also lowers the amount of virus in an individual’s system which helps prevent the spread of HIV to others.

Testing for non-clinic locations are on hold in response to COVID-19 concerns. If you cannot come to one of our clinics during regular testing times, please call (832) 548 5221 for assistance.

For close to 40 years Legacy has led the fight against HIV. Our integrated approach to care has helped give our patients the opportunity to live healthier, more productive lives—and help end the spread of HIV.

Legacy first opened its doors to the LGBTQ community in 1978 as the Montrose Clinic, with the commitment to provide health care services to Houstonians living with HIV when nobody else would. Since then, Legacy has become a trusted provider of comprehensive HIV/AIDS primary health care services—and a nationally recognized leader in HIV/AIDS testing, prevention, and treatment.

Everyone has an HIV status. Everyone should know their status.
