The largest city of Solano County, Vallejo, has also been a victim to the current nationwide upswing of STD rates. While it’s almost half the rate of San Francisco, Solano County reported 598.7 per 100,000 people new cases of chlamydia in 2018. Ranking them 12th highest in California for the infection. For gonorrhea, they ranked 14th highest in California with a rate of 181.8 per 100,000. That rate is double what it was just several years earlier in 2013.
Primary and secondary syphilis rates put Solano County and the Vallejo area 32nd in California. Not as high as chlamydia or gonorrhea, but still a reported 10.3 cases out of every 100,000 people tested.
Again, over double the rate reported for syphilis just a few years earlier in the year 2013. Thankfully, congenital syphilis was down to almost 0 cases per 100,000 newborns after a large spike (19 cases per 100,000 babies) in 2014.
