What are the STI test options in Plantation,FL?
Southeast Florida is known for high STD rates, especially HIV. In 2015, there were 18,867 people living with HIV or AIDS in Broward County, with a prevalence rate of 1,180 per 100K people, well above Florida’s rate of 615.
Health officials are worried about the people out there who still don’t know they are infected. There is still a stigma around HIV, especially directed toward gay and bisexual men, and this may make some people reluctant to come in for testing. But medical professionals are discreet and only want to help you.
In 2017, 11,289 people in Broward County were diagnosed with chlamydia, at a rate of 599 per 100K people, above Florida’s rate of 486.8. The gonorrhea and infectious syphilis rates were 209.1 and 17.5.
There aren’t too many clinics actually in Plantation, but there are more options closer to Fort Lauderdale (and you may have some luck finding free STD testing there). The CVS MinuteClinic on Broward Blvd provides basic screenings. CAN Community Health on NW 3rd Ct provides STD testing and treatment, and they also prescribe PrEP.
