Saturday is National HIV testing day

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Saturday is National HIV testing day across the country.

The Mississippi State Department of Health is encouraging everyone to get tested and know your status.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 1.2 million people in the U-S have HIV. 

One in six people don't know they have it, which is why it's important to get tested.

Free HIV tests will be offered tomorrow morning at the Walgreens on State Street in Jackson from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.
