Viral Load Test with PEP?

A few days ago I went to a clinic to receive PEP (28 days worth) for an incidence of unprotected intercourse. They did a rapid HIV test beforehand (negative) and they also drew my blood for a viral load test. '

My question is, is it routine for clinics/hospitals to draw blood for viral load tests when PEP is administered?

They take a baseline test, if they took a VL test no big deal.
