As Henderson is a relatively small city in Rusk County, TX, you may be concerned about the number of public or private health centers to choose from. Henderson does, however, have a public health center on Main Street, and health centers in nearby Longview that offer Henderson residents STD testing.
You may find some clinics also offer STD prevention services such as PrEp for those considered at high risk of HIV infection, or clinics specifically aimed at women such as Zeid Women’s Health Center offering STD testing services.
Some clinics in Henderson might even provide free STD testing to those that qualify, especially during the yearly HIV Awareness Month campaign. Unfortunately, this could mean there is limited appointment availability and not everyone will be eligible for these services.
