What are the STI test options in South Miami Heights, FL?

South Miami Heights, FL, in Miami-Dade County, is struggling with an STD crisis. In 2018, Miami’s HIV rate jumped to nearly four times the national average with 54 new diagnoses for every 100,000 cases, giving the city the highest infection rate in the country

The STD outbreaks are more than HIV. The area’s also seen a jump in chlamydia and gonorrhea. In 2015, Miami-Dade County reported 11,862 new cases of chlamydia, and in 2018, it increased to 13,415 new annual cases. Also between 2015 and 2018, gonorrhea diagnoses nearly doubled from 2,600 to 4,315. 

State and county officials are more than concerned about the HIV outbreak in South Florida. According to the CDC, the area’s HIV infection rate is more than three times the national average. 

STD testing locations aren’t hard to find in South Miami. The University of Miami Health System provides screenings at Walgreens Pharmacy, which is conveniently located at the corner of SW 137 Ave and 152 St. The SW 137 bus route stops here.

Community Health of South Florida offers a few sites including the Doris Ison Health Center on SW 216th St and the Naranja Health Center at the corner of SW 264th St and SW 138th Ct. Both locations are on the local bus route.

For Planned Parenthood STD screening services, the nearest location is at the Kendall Health Center on SW 117th Ave in Miami.
