Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD)
Effective July 10, 2017, the Fairfax County Health Department will require your health insurance information or proof of household income for the Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) services you receive in Health Department clinics. An appointment will be necessary. Please call to make an appointment before your next visit.
Beginning July 10, the Health Department will continue to offer confidential HIV testing for a fee but anonymous testing will no longer be available.
The goal of the Fairfax County Health Department's STD program is to prevent the spread of the diseases transmitted sexually in the community by identifying illness, providing treatment and taking actions to prevent the spread of disease.
The Health Department provides a range of STI services, including testing, medications, counseling, oversight of treatment and a wide range of educational efforts focused on prevention of the spread of STDs.
STI services may not be covered under your private health insurance plan. Please check with your provider.
