At risk of contracting Tuberculosis?
If you think you may be at risk for contracting TB, please visit our pharmacy to get a Tuberculin skin test.
This test is performed by a pharmacist placing a small amount of fluid (Tuberculin) under the skin of one’s lower forearm. After receiving the skin test, you will then be seen by our pharmacist within 48-72 hours to read the results of the test by observing any reaction.
This test can be performed in our Polyclinic pharmacy or upon request, or a pharmacist can travel to your office for large group screenings. Feel free to contact us for details.
