Tuberculosis (TB) Program

TB disease develops from TB infection. People don’t know they have TB infection unless they have been tested for TB. TB is a serious disease that can cause a person to become very sick if not treated with medicine. TB usually affects the lungs, but it sometimes affects other parts of the body. To learn more click here.

Tuberculin skin testing (TST/PPD) requires two visits to the Immunization Clinic: one to place the test and another to read the test. For the days, times and locations of TB testing click here.

If you need to be evaluated for latent TB infection or TB disease or need to pick-up medication, please call: 586-469-5421 to schedule an appointment with the TB Program. 

Hours and Locations

Persons with a positive PPD skin test can be evaluated through the TB Control Program by calling (586) 469-5421 for an appointment.
