tb skin test02All UAB Hospital Employees should have an annual TB skin test between January and June of each calendar year. Employees who have already tested "positive" in the past should come by UAB Employee Health to complete a short survey and pick up their compliant card.

TB skin test are given every weekday except Thursdays from 7 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Tests are read in our office 48-72 hours later — self reported readings cannot be accepted.

Employees exposed to active TB should contact UAB Employee Health to see if they need a baseline skin test. Follow-up testing should be done 10-12 weeks after exposure.
