This primarily residential area often falls off the grid when it comes to their health rankings. Thrown in with the county’s, some residents might feel that their census-designated neighborhood is safe from the problems of the “big cities”. This is not true.

Looking for a Low Cost or Free STD Testing Clinic? Let's See What's Available in Kendall-Perrine, FL

When you’re ready for your STD test, hopefully now, Planned Parenthood is on SW 88th St, less than 3 miles away from most residences. A well-known advocate for sexual health, you can rest assured that you will be in good hands. Do call ahead, they are busy and won’t take anyone that doesn’t have a prior appointment. Since they do provide a multitude of services, you can remain anonymous about the reason you are there. The only downside is that you might still run into someone you know.

Miami-Dade health department has screenings for all types of STDs. Located in West Perrine, you will want to double check times and fees. Since it is managed by the county fees can be reduced or waived, just bring the necessary paperwork with you when you show up. They will not just take your word that you are unable to pay. They also go out into the field, and you might be able to find a mobile STI testing station near you. Locations vary where they set up, and it is only at certain times of the year so you will have to plan ahead.

Jackson Health System requires you to live in the county, but they will evaluate your finances to determine how much your appointment will cost.

The only downside is that they might not allow you to pay a reduced fee, regardless of your income.

Affordable or Free HIV Testing Clinics Near Kendall-Perrine, FL

HIV is the precursor to AIDS and both are frightening viruses. Even though your county has one of the highest infection rates, you don’t have to be one of those listed in the statistics. Anytime you get a STI checkup, ask about an HIV screening. Most facilities will be more than happy to oblige.

These include Planned Parenthood and the county’s health clinics.

Care Resource Community Health Center runs promotionals that include free screenings for HIV. This offer is only during a prespecified time so check their website for the next date. Expect lines, and results can take up to 4 days but if payment for a STI test could be an issue it is worth checking out.

Latinos Salud on SW 107th welcomes everyone, and you don’t have to worry about language barriers. This community organization has rapid HIV blood tests so you’ll get results in minutes instead of days. Payment can be arranged if you have difficulty paying, and this does draw in daily crowds. You can offset some of the wait by scheduling an appointment, but this does not guarantee that you still won’t have to sit in the reception room.

The only time walk-ins can get tested at Community Health of South Florida Inc., is for HIV. They do have rapid testing, and sometimes it can be free if you have the proper documentation. Since every other service requires an appointment you can expect crowds. You will also want to arrive early to secure a parking spot and your place in line.

If this all seems to be a hassle, try a private HIV/STI clinic. There are several around, and you are guaranteed not to wait. Discretion is their goal, along with giving results before you are out the door.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Kendall-Perrine, FL

Information on sexual health isn’t lacking, it can just be a little harder to find. Since parents must agree that their child can take a sex ed class in school, kids often don’t get to participate. It’s not always anyone’s fault, it can be hard to get a permission slip home for a class and get it back to school.

When this happens, look to one of the community health centers. The county even sponsors a few. There you can find everything you need to know about sexually transmitted diseases. A key part of prevention is knowledge and these centers know this. Programs are held for anyone that wants to attend. You can also find brochures and pamphlets free for the taking at most places. Even if you have to drive a few miles, it is worth it when you consider the ramifications STDs can have on your life.

Knowing how these diseases and infections can affect you is the first step towards stopping their further spread.


Better Sexual Health in Kendall-Perrine, FL

Beaches, fabulous shopping and great food at any price isn’t too far away, which makes the planned neighborhood a popular one in the metro. Unfortunately, this and other factors are causing health rankings to plummet, especially the soaring STDs being treated. It doesn’t have to be this way if everyone got tested. Public clinics have their downsides but they are there to help. Private STI testing labs have none of the disadvantages, and there is probably one closer than you think.
