Additional information about TB skin tests:

•    The TB skin test is the standard method of determining if you are infected with tuberculosis.
•    A small amount of fluid, called tuberculin, is injected under the skin of your forearm.
•    You must return 48 hours later to have the TB test read by a Public Health Nurse.
•    If the TB skin test is positive, you will be referred to your healthcare provider with instructions for additional evaluation.
•    Some employers require a two-step TB skin test. The second test needs to be given 7-21 days after the first test.
