(Charlottesville, Va.) – In an effort to increase access to free testing for common sexually transmitted infections (STIs), the Thomas Jefferson Health District’s (TJHD) Charlottesville/Albemarle Health Department is changing Sexual Health Clinic hours to offer morning options. Beginning October 4, 2016, the new hours will include walk-in clinics every Tuesday from 8:15 to 11:15 a.m. The weekly morning clinic will be offered in addition to the walk-in Sexual Health Clinics, which are held every Friday from 1 to 4 p.m. and the first Wednesday of every month from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.
The new clinic hours will provide testing for STI’s such as Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, HIV, Syphilis, and in certain instances, Hepatitis B and C virus. TJHD nursing and outreach staff decided to change the clinic hours to include more opportunities in the community for testing.
“We are offering this morning clinic to make it easier and more convenient for people to get tested for sexually transmitted infections,” said Clare Ruday, TJHD Public Health Nurse. “We are excited to now offer morning, afternoon, and evening clinic hours!”
No appointment is needed and anyone can walk in for free testing during the days and hours below.
