Occupy Wall Street protesters are heading to local medical clinics to be tested for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections.

According to the New York Post, the protesters have been directed to clinics from the medical tent, which provides information about how to get STI tests and pregnancy tests. They also offer some cash to help people pay for low-income medical attention.

"Like anything else, it happens," a volunteer told the Post. "People ask, and we do the best we can for them."
