TB / PPD Skin Testing
Tuberculosis (TB) usually attacks the lungs, but these bacteria can attack any part of the body including the kidney, spine, and brain. Not everyone infected with the bacteria becomes sick and if not treated properly, TB can be fatal. TB is spread through to air from person to person. The bacteria are put into the air when someone with TB disease of the lungs or throat coughs, speaks, or sings, and another individual inhales these bacteria. We are currently offering TB Skin Test placements on Mondays in Colfax and the Reads in Colfax on Wednesdays by appointment.
