Tuberculin (TB) skin tests are available at the Campus Health Clinic. You must come to the clinic two times. The first will be for the injection of the PPD into the forearm. The second time is to check for the skin reaction (often called a “TB read”) and this will be done 48-72 hours after the test. If you do not get your test read within this designated time frame, the nurse will be unable to accurately interpret the results. If this occurs, you will need to make another appointment to get the injection and you will be charged for the re-test.
If you need a TB skin test or physical for a job, you will need to see the Nurse Practitioner. Call our office to schedule an appointment at 573-651-2270 or stop by to see the secretary. Please bring all physical forms with you.
