What are the STI test options in Burlington,VT?
Vermont has some of the lowest STD rates in the country, but health officials even here are worried about the rise, especially because the numbers available only show the people who have been tested.
Doctors recommend routine screening for sexually active individuals, even for those who have not seen any symptoms.
In 2015, the HIV prevalence rate for Chittenden County was 152 per 100K people. That’s pretty low, but don’t celebrate yet. Since HIV is preventable, that number needs to go down. Chittenden County’s 2016 chlamydia rate was 359.4, most of the cases being young people.
The gonorrhea and (primary and secondary) syphilis rates were 34.1 and 4.3. Health officials cite, among other factors, Vermont’s relatively progressive sex education program for its low STD rates.
There are a few STD-testing clinics in Burlington. At least one nonprofit offers free STD testing for HIV only. Planned Parenthood is located on Saint Paul St. They test for STIs and test for all except HIV. The fee is based on a sliding scale.
