What is PEP?
Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) is an HIV prevention option that should be used only in emergency situations. PEP must be started within 72 hours after a recent possible exposure to HIV. If you think you have been exposed to HIV in the last 72 hours, go to the nearest Urgent Care facility or Emergency Room for assistance.
If you have any questions about PEP we are able to assist you during working hours, Monday through Friday from 9 AM- 5 PM.
