NBC NATIONAL NEWS — A federal health panel has issued new recommendations for HIV screenings, saying most teens and adults should get tested.
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force says everyone ages 15-65 should get a one-time screening for the virus that causes aids.
The task force recommends women get tested during each pregnancy.
It also recommends that people in risk groups for HIV get screened once a year at the very least.
