kaplan can say whatever they want

That's correct (ref UW)
You do routine screening for everyone for syphilis.

Less than 24 year old, sexually active comes in for regular check up you screen for gonorrhea and chlamydia.
If pregnant with shitload of risk factors like being a slut and **** it would prob be a good idea to screen.

The only mandatory screening for STD is syphilis.
