TB Skin Testing and Case Management for Active and Latent Tuberculosis
This program provides tuberculosis skin testing to clients who are required by their school or occupation to have
annual TB skin tests. Chest X-rays are ordered for clients who have a positive TB skin test. Medications for
treatment and prevention of TB are provided free of charge through a state funded program.
The cost of a TB skin test done for purposes other than exposure to the disease is $25.00.
This service is offered daily 8: 30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. except on Thursday. Clients must return 48-72 hours for
a reading of the skin test.
How the Community Benefits:
The TB program helps detect persons with active and latent TB and treat them with effective anti-tuberculosis drugs.
This stops the transmission of infection to other persons.
