What are the STI test options in Hollister, CA?

STD levels in San Benito County, where Hollister is the agricultural county seat, are better than the average rates across California. However, California is currently experiencing an STD crisis with record highs of gonorrhea, syphilis, and chlamydia recorded between 2017 and 2019. This concerning trend has also been accompanied by an increase in congenital syphilis cases in San Benito County.

Thankfully, San Benito County has one of the lowest prevalence rates for HIV in California, with 33 cases reported at a rate of 74 per 100,000. 

Gonorrhea is more prevalent in males, with an average case rate of 23 per 100,000 recorded in 2014-2016, while the case rate for females was almost 25% lower at 16.7 females per 100,000. 

In San Benito, 313 cases of chlamydia per 100,000 residents were recorded in 2013. By 2015, the case rate had risen to 411 cases, an increase of 25%. In 2016, the rate of chlamydia dropped to 318 cases, due in part to the local initiatives to reduce the impact of STDs in Hollister and the surrounding areas.

One such initiative provided by San Benito County to combat the rise in STDs is to screen all pregnant women in San Benito County for syphilis three times during their pregnancy. Treatment during pregnancy for syphilis is recorded as almost 100% effective at reducing the devastating effects of congenital syphilis. 

There are dedicated health centers in Hollister that offer STD screenings and treatments for pregnant women, including the Hollister Pregnancy Center on Fifth Street. Another option for services including HIV/AIDS testing and counseling is the San Benito Health Foundation Community Health Center on Felice Drive.

Some of the other available clinics may offer low-cost or free STD testing, but follow-up consultations might cost extra, and treatments themselves may not be free.

Private clinics are also available in Hollister, CA.
