TB Screening and Other Services
TB skin testing is available Monday and Tuesday from 8am to 4pm and Wednesday and Friday from 8am to 12pm. TB skin testing is not available on Thursdays.
TB skin testing for school and work will have a fee of $20.00.
TB screening with blood test (Quantiferon-TB Gold) can be done Monday-Thursday 8am to 3:30pm and Friday 8am to 12pm.
Quantiferon-TB testing for school, work and immigration will have a fee of $40.00.
If your TB screening is positive, an appointment will be made for a nurse interview and chest x-ray to determine your treatment needs. You may be infected with the bacteria that causes TB, but not actually have TB disease. In this case, the physician may recommend preventive therapy in the form of antibiotics.
If your TB screening is positive and your chest x-ray indicates active disease, you will be tested further to determine the best treatment. You will also be informed on how to protect those around you from contracting TB.
If any treatment is prescribed by the staff physician, it will be provided at no cost.
