What are the STI test options in Hialeah,FL?

As part of the Miami area, one would expect Hialeah to have high STD rates. And they are high, but lower than those in Miami itself, or Miami Shores or Miami Beach. In 2015, there were 1,763 people living with HIV or AIDS in Zone 1 of Miami-Dade County, which includes Hialeah. Over 80% of them were men.

Health officials are concerned that people are not coming in for testing and treatment due to the social stigma. Heroin use is also responsible for some of those numbers.

In 2017, Miami-Dade County had 12,271 chlamydia cases, at a rate of 445.4. The gonorrhea and infectious syphilis rates were 128.5 and 17.5.

There are a few STD-testing clinics in Hialeah, and even more options if you can get to Miami. At least one nonprofit offers free STD testing, but there may be a wait.

The UHealth Clinic, part of the University of Miami Health System, operates out of the Walgreens on Palm Ave, and they offer STD testing. Citrus Health Networks, located on 51st Pl, provides HIV testing and treatment.

Which one is right for you?
