Here’s what you need to know about STD testing & treatment at this health center:

We can test for gonorrhea and chlamydia using a urine sample. If this test shows an infection, then we will provide you with treatment and explain how your partner(s) can be treated.

For testing involving urine samples, including chlamydia and gonorrhea, do not urinate or engage in sexual intercourse for one hour before testing.

Many STD tests require a genital exam.

Rapid HIV testing can be done with a blood sample taken from a finger stick. The results are available in 10-40 minutes.

Counseling and confidential (private) testing for STDs are provided by trained staff who are sensitive to your needs and concerns.

HIV and Syphilis: Testing and diagnosis only. Referrals for treatment provided as needed.

Individuals ages 19 - 26 who have no health insurance and meet financial criteria may qualify for the Merck Vaccine Patient Assistance Program to receive the HPV vaccine (Gardasil) at no charge. Other fees may apply.

Some vaccines are given in a series over the course of several months, which would require you to return to the health center to get the full benefit.
