Congratulations! You’ve been accepted to that school program or perhaps you got that new job. But before you can start you’ve been asked to complete a TB skin test by your school or employer. No idea what a TB skin test is? Here’s what you need to know.
TB, or tuberculosis, is a bacteria spread through the air when a contagious person coughs, sneezes, sings or talks. TB usually occurs in the lungs but can affect any organ. Medication is available to treat TB.
The TB skin test is used to detect infection with TB bacteria. The TB test consists of two appointments:
Appointment #1: A small amount (0.1mL) of test substance is injected under the first layer of skin on your forearm. If you have been exposed to TB bacteria your skin will react to form a firm red bump.
Appointment #2: You must return to the clinic 48 to 72hrs later to have your forearm looked at by the nurse. If it is not looked at within 72 hours the result becomes invalid and the test must be repeated. Make sure to arrive on time for your second appointment!
"Thanks very much for your quick response and great feedback about Yellow Fever, Penny! "
Travelsafe is great. I am going on a trip to South America, went in to see about what shots and medications I may need for the trip. I am an experienced traveller, Penny was very helpful informing of all the possible risks involved with the areas I will be travelling to. I was extremely pleased with friendly service and left feeling well prepared for the trip ahead.
Thank you for all your advice and information yesterday. It really put me at ease for my upcoming trip. I was starting to fret a bit, but now feel well informed to take on the bugs.
This place is AWESOME! Helped me out in a timely matter.
Penny went above and beyond to make the impossible happen
for me. Can't recommend them enough!
I am writing to express my appreciation for the excellent service and very complete information on health risks and precautions for my upcoming trips to South America and Africa. I was most impressed that my medical history was considered and a possible drug interaction was avoided by switching to a different malaria prophylaxis. Pros and cons were discussed for the various vaccinations that were either required or optional and the advice I received set my mind at ease.
Penny Gleave was extremely knowledgeable and also provided informative handouts that will be useful to have on hand during my travels. Penny is a caring professional and has a passion for her work. It was a pleasure to be counselled by her.
As a travel professional I will definitely be recommending with total confidence the TravelSafe Clinic to my clients.
A professional and well organized experience. I left there immunized and aware. Not coming here before I left would have been a mistake.
