There is a dearth of data for HIV cases in Bedford County specifically due to the data being suppressed, according to the Tennessee Department of Health.

“While HIV cases are going down across the country, southern states harbor a disproportionate number of diagnoses. The opioid crisis may also trigger increased reports of the virus.”

The Bedford County Health Department can offer STD and HIV testing for Shelbyville, TN residents. You can ask clinic staff about free STD testing.

There is also an Urgent Team in Tullahoma, 14 miles from Shelbyville, TN.
