If you get the AIDS virus now, you and your license could expire at the same time.
Let’s say don’t think you’ll get AIDS because you don’t know anyone who has it. There’s one thing you’re overlooking.
AIDS is caused by a virus called HIV. And HIV doesn’t lead to AIDS right away.
Someone can have HIV for many years without even knowing it. This means that many people in their twenties who have AIDS may have been infected with the virus while they were in their teens.
don’t wait for proof that AIDS exists.
It does. So, take precautions now. If you’d like more information about the AIDS virus, how to prevent it, and how to reduce risks, call the National AIDS hotline. 1-800-342-AIDS. The hotline for the hearing impaired is 1-800-AIDS-TTY.
