Vineland was originally supposed to be a tee-totaling utopian society. Today, the city’s STD rates are lower than many other parts of New Jersey, but those numbers could still come down. And southern New Jersey also has a high teen pregnancy rate.
New Jersey, however, has a more progressive sex education curriculum than many other states, and they’re working on the problem, though some students say the teaching is too clinical and not practical enough.
In 2015, there were 631 people with HIV or AIDS living in Cumberland County, with a prevalence rate of 492 per 100K people. For bacterial STDs, Vineland was ranked #44 in the state in 2016. That year, the rates for chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis were 359, 68, and 12 per 100K people.
There are some STD-testing clinics in Vineland. At least one free clinic offers free STD testing. As it is public, note that there may be a wait, increasing the likelihood that you will be observed waiting there (that’s an issue for some people).
Famcare on South Main Rd offers HIV testing. Dr. David Kaufman on Chestnut Ave specializes in infectious diseases, including HIV/AIDS medicine.
