Carol City has a relatively large amount of STD outbreaks, especially with gonorrhoea, chlamydia and infectious syphilis.
In Miami-Dade County, the occurrences of chlamydia in particular have increased at a much faster rate than the rest of the state. The reported rate of infectious syphilis has also been steadily increasing. The HIV rates, while remaining steady, are much higher than at the state level. In 2015, 53,9 per 100,000 people reported having HIV.
The Florida Department of Health also reported that in 2014 the counties Miami-Dade and Broward together were accountable for 38% of the new HIV cases in Florida.
There are plenty of private and public testing centers in and near Carol City, with public options including North Dade Health Center on Northwest 25th Avenue and Planned Parenthood on 585 N.W. 161 St Suites 200-300. Note that these centers both don’t do HIV tests. Both of these clinics are easily accessible with public transport, and there is a parking lot near Planned Parenthood.
Other clinics include the Community Access Center and CAN Community Health. These community clinics let you make an appointment and return your results as swiftly as possible. The Community Access Center does provide HIV tests. There are also several private doctors specialised in sexual health and STD testing.
If you are worried about the costs involved, some clinics may provide free STD testing to some people. Not everybody, however, will be eligible for the free testing. Additionally, the test may not be able to detect every sexually transmitted disease.
