At Health Department sexual health clinics, community members receive confidential examination, diagnosis, and treatment for most sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Clinics also offer education to reduce the risk of those infections and free hepatitis A and B vaccines and human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccines for all eligible clients. In addition, Health Department staff are available to speak and conduct educational programs for school and community groups.
Fees and Eligibility
The fee for services is $10 per visit; however, everyone is provided services regardless of the ability to pay. Services are available to females and males thirteen years of age and older. Identification is requested.
During the Health Department's response to COVID-19, sexual health clinic hours have been reduced to Monday and Friday mornings, by appointment only. We are not taking walk-in clients for these services at this time:
- Monday and Friday mornings from 9:00 am to 11:30 am*
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are potentially serious infections that are spread through sexual contact with a partner. Many infections may not show any noticeable symptoms, which is why STD testing is crucial. Medications for most of the diseases are available and effective, but if left untreated STDs can cause serious physical damage and infertility. Anyone who has unprotected sexual activity outside of a mutually monogamous relationship is at risk for an STD and should be examined.
