What are the STI test options in Miami Beach,FL?

South Florida has one of the highest HIV and other STD rates in the nation, but public health officials’ campaigns are often thwarted by the tourism industry, which worries that educational billboards (such as those in California and New York) could discourage people from spending their vacations and winters there.

While youth and economically disadvantaged people are at risk, STD rates among senior citizens are also high. In 2015, there were 3,356 people living with HIV or AIDS in Miami Beach, South Beach, and Surfside, the vast majority being MSM over 40 years old.

In 2017, Miami-Dade County had a chlamydia rate of 445.4 per 100K people and a gonorrhea rate of 128.5, both of which were slightly lower than the Florida rates.

Miami Beach has some STD-testing clinics, and if you can get to the mainland there are even more options, including some that provide free STD testing, though you might have to wait in line.

AHF Wellness Center is located on Alton Rd and provides STD testing on a walk-in basis. Latinos Salud also offers tests and can also help you get started on PrEP, and you can find them on Arthur Godfrey Rd. You can also get tested at Care Resource, just across the Julia Tuttle Causeway, in Miami.

Additional STD Test Statistics in Miami Beach, FL

From 2006 to 2014 the rates for Chlamydia and Syphilis have doubled, and according to new data the percentages are still rising.

What is really worrisome, according to one local health officials, is that the rising STD rates have gone largely unnoticed by local residents. This, believes some health officials, could mean that the percentages  are much higher since some people could be infected and not even realize it.

It’s not just Chlamydia and Syphilis rates that are rising, the statistics also show that Gonorrhea, Herpes and HIV/AIDS incidents are climbing as well. In the three year period from 2013 to 2015 the county’s rate for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea and infectious Syphilis was the highest in the state, and this includes Broward County where STDs are already a known problem. The recently released statistics also indicate that it is no longer teens and young adults at risk, but older residents are also testing positive more often.

Men over the age of 24 are twice as likely to contract primary and secondary Syphilis as younger males. While Syphilis and HIV/AIDS is more common in men, Chlamydia continues to be a problem for women. Teens and young adults are twice as likely to contract Chlamydia as those in other demographics, and the rates are especially high in African American and Hispanic females.

  • From 1994 to 1996 the rate for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea and infectious Syphilis for the county was reported at 226.3 compared to the 529.8 percent reported for 2013 to 2015.
  • From 1994 to 2015 the STD rates for the city and county almost doubled.
  • The number of STDs reported in residents ages 25 to 34 have increased by 5 percent.

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Miami Beach, FL

Even though the state has the highest rate for new cases of HIV in the country and ranks 12th in the nation for number of teen pregnancies, Florida is still relying on outdated information and abstinence based sex education classes to help keep students and residents safe. Judging by the high STD and teen pregnancy rates this approach simply is not working.

While religious based material is not allowed in the classroom, students are taught that abstinence should be their only option. Since studies show that teens are having sex at a younger age, and this is backed up by the high pregnancy rates, many health officials believe that students need more information. This will include material on contraceptives and the importance of using condoms. Unfortunately law makers still believe that abstinence based sex education classes are still the best choice, and the percentages of teens and young adults with a STD will continue to rise.

This is way it is important that everyone understands how vital regular HIV testing in Miami Beach is for their continued good health. Regular Herpes testing in Miami Beach is also important, and the simple procedure could help slow the virus’ spread.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Miami Beach, FL

While the lack of a sex education program that addresses the issues teens and young adults currently face is one of the main reasons STD rates are so high on the barrier island, it is not the only factor causing these percentages to rise.

The growing number and popularity of dating apps is making it easier for teens and adults to “hook up”, and this often means engaging in sexual activity without using protection. Even as some teens are referring to this as their version of “free love” , health officials are worried that it will end like the last one with skyrocketing STD rates.

Adding to the problem is the shame and fear many residents feel when they think that they might have a sexually transmitted disease. Certain stigmas are still associated with STDs and this can make it especially difficult for teens and young adults to admit that there might be a problem with their sexual health.

Until these and other issues are resolved the city can expect to see its STD rates rise.

Better Sexual Health in Miami Beach, FL

Before heading to the beach or across the bridge to the mainland, think about your  health. A few STI clinics on the barrier island exist but the long lines have many residents looking for something else. Now you can schedule confidential STD testing with one simply phone call, and only spend a few minutes at the local lab. This way you can take care of your sexual health and still have plenty of time to see the city’s famous art deco buildings.
