What are the STI test options in Yonkers,NY?
Though located just north of New York City, its STD rates are lower. From 2010 to 2012, 82 people in Yonkers were diagnosed with HIV, at a rate of 13.7 per 100K people. The New York state rate was 19, though it would have been 7.6 with NYC excluded.
In 2017, 3,812 people in Westchester County, at a rate of 427.9. Twice as many women as men were diagnosed, and over half were under the age of 24.
There were 672 gonorrhea cases, at a rate of 76.8. Over half of them were men. There were 84 diagnoses of primary and secondary syphilis, at a rate of 9.2. The vast majority were men. But New York has a lot of STD awareness campaigns, some of which may provide free STD testing at certain occasions.
There are some STD-testing clinics in Yonkers and even more options in the surrounding area. Planned Parenthood, on South Broadway, tests for STIs and treats all of them except HIV at a low cost that depends on your income.
The Westchester County Health Department, in the same building, also screens for STDs. Check their schedule to see whether you need to make an appointment. They also prescribe PrEP. The HOPE Center at Park Care Pavilion screens for HIV and offers PrEP.
