The control and prevention of communicable diseases, including Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs), is one of the most important functions of Public Health. Treatment has been available for syphilis and gonorrhea since the 1940’s, yet these STDs and others are still major problems for sexually active persons today. At the OKC-County Health Department, we want to help you learn the symptoms of common STDs, what to do if you suspect that you or your partner may be infected with STDs, and learn how to protect yourself from future infections.
Our STD clinic provides low-cost diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted infections. We test for the following STDs:
- Genital herpes (OCCHD does not perform the blood test for genital herpes)
- Human papillomavirus
For more information on these STDs, please see the links located near the end of this page.
Any sexually-active person twelve years of age or older may be seen in our clinic.
If you are sexually active and would like to be screened, we welcome you to visit our STD clinic. We have an experienced group of RN Clinicians working under CDC guidelines and OU Infectious Disease Physicians providing excellent care in the evaluation and treatment of STDs.

What are the STD clinic’s hours?
The STD clinic is a walk-in clinic that opens at 7 a.m. Monday through Thursday. The number of clients seen may vary daily, so arrive early. Clients begin their visit by signing in with the receptionist at the front desk in the lobby. After a member of the clerical staff completes the check-in process, a public health nurse will perform the examination.
The examination is done in private. No other persons may be present—this includes parents. However, a female employee/witness will be present when a male public health nurse examines a female client.
We do not and cannot acknowledge a client’s presence in our clinic. Results can only be made to the client. The clinic will provide translation services when needed.
How much does an exam cost?
The fee for services is $20.00.
Some results may not be available at the time of the clinic visit. Clients will receive information on how to receive results and when those results will be available. Clients should ensure this follow-up for their own information and in case it is necessary to return to the clinic.
Where can I find more information on STDs?
