What to Expect

If you qualify for a tuberculin skin test, you will require two appointments – one for administration of the test, and one for reading of the test 48-72 hours later. Please check in with reception in Public Health. You will be seen by a Public Health Nurse who will explain and administer the test, as well as discuss follow up. Appointments generally last 10-20 minutes.
