What are the STI test options in Beaumont,TX?
In 2015 Jefferson County reported over 8,000 cases of syphilis, over 39,000 cases of gonorrhea, and over 141,000 cases of chlamydia. It can be a scary time to be intimate or to develop intimate relationships.
Treatment-resistant gonorrhea cases are on the rise in the state of Texas. HIV transmission rates are on the rise, as well.
Area organizations, including the Health Department, are joining forces to roll out education and prevention initiatives as a way to drive down the steadily rising rates of STD cases in the region. Through concerts, artists, and classes they aim to increase awareness and decrease the stigma associated with sexually transmitted diseases.
Throughout Beaumont there are many private and public std testing options, from the Legacy Community Health Services on North 11th Street to the Triangle AIDS Network Incorporated on North 7th Street. Free STD testing can be found but since it isn’t offered everywhere finding a location can be difficult.
Some labs, like Legacy Community Health Services, have many locations throughout the city often making it more convenient for residents.
