Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) are caused by bacteria or viruses usually transmitted by sexual activity with an infected person. With the exception of viral infections, most STDs can be cured. If you think you have an STD or need to be screened, don't hesitate to come in to the clinic.

The Ocean County Health Department offers free, confidential testing and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases (Syphilis, Gonorrhea, and Chlamydia - anonymous HIV testing is available if requested). At the clinic, patients are seen on a first come, first serve basis. The clinic visit will include several steps: registration, interview, blood draw, and exam; results/medications are provided once the results of screening tests are made available by the laboratory. Medication is provided FREE for those who are symptomatic.

We will make every effort to answer all your questions and concerns during your visit. You will receive information and counseling on ways to protect yourself from sexually transmitted diseases and free condoms are offered at the end of the visit.

The Ocean County Health Department offers STD clinics every Wednesday evening at the Health Department main site at 175 Sunset Avenue, Toms River and every 2nd and 4th Thursday evening at 333 Haywood Road, Manahawkin. Registration is from 4:30pm – 6:00pm.
