      HIV Tests in drugstores?

      {}In addition to blood pressure checks and flu shots -- your local drugstore may soon offer HIV tests.

      The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is looking into free rapid HIV tests at many pharmacies.

      The test will involve a swab of the mouth and results are ready within 20 minutes.

      The CDC says drugstores in 24 cities will offer the test -- while seven already have them.

      It's estimated -- over one million Americans are infected with HIV -- nearly 20 percent them don't know they have the virus.
