The Chelsea STD Clinic on 9th Ave has been shuttered for renovations for 2-3 years. In the meantime, health officials are trying to send NY-ers to Riverside Clinic at 106th St. for STD testing, which will have a chilling effect on testing in the neighborhood.
Chelsea has the highest # of HIV, syphilis and gonorrhea diagnoses of any area in the country! That's WITH a clinic, so now's not the time to be reducing sexual health care for the largely LGBT clientele in Chelsea. Tell Mayor DeBlasio and City Hall that we won't stand for a CLOSED Chelsea clinic.
