What are the STI test options in San Luis,AZ?

San Luis is a city that sits next to the Mexico border in Yuma County, Arizona.  Data from county reports show that the rate of chlamydia is 529.2, gonorrhea is 118.0, syphilis is 4.4, and HIV is 154.2 for every 100,000 people.

According to the CDC report, young people aged 15 to 24-years-old ranked highest among reported cases. “If you fall within that age range and you are sexually active, especially with multiple partners, get tested,” Rachael Baker, public health nurse for Yuma County Health District said.

San Luis public health is managed by Yuma County.  The county has an STD Program that investigates and follows up on cases, testing and treatment, STD education, and also provide assistance with HIV through oral health care, medical case management, drug assistance, and cost-sharing assistance.

In San Luis, there are a few clinics to choose from when looking for a place to get STD testing.  There is the San Luis Urgent Care clinic on Main St and a Sunset Community Health Center on East Cesar Chavez St.

Other options to consider are the Northside Medical Clinic on Juan Sanchez Blvd and the San Jose Health Clinic on East Juan Sanchez Blvd.

While some clinics may offer free STD testing, some clinics may only offer services if you meet income and welfare eligibility requirements.  Clinics may also vary in available hours, a doctor may not be on site to speak with, or test results may not be immediately available.
