The fee for a Tuberculosis (TB) skin test is $30. TB skin tests are administered at the Health Department every day of the week except Thursdays. Blood testing for TB screening also is available at a cost of $71. The blood test is primarily recommended for anyone born in a foreign country or who has received BCG vaccination.
Occasionally there is currently a shortage of TB skin testing material. Clients who need TB testing during shortages will be screened for health and job risks to determine which test is recommended during the shortage. This may include a screening form only until the shortage is resolved.
