ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Across the country on Tuesday, health department officials are urging people to get tested for HIV.

In St. Louis, both city and county health departments offered free testing sites.

Walgreens is also offering free screenings throughout the month of June.

Early detection can save lives.

 "Common myths is that it's a death sentence," said Dr. Fredrick Echols. "A lot of advances have occurred in the biomedical industry, as well as the pharmaceutical industry.  So there are a lot of therapies that are available for persons who acquire HIV infections."
