TB Skin Test

TB skin tests are provided to employees at no charge when needed to meet VUMC compliance requirements. This service is available at multiple locations:

  • Occupational Health Clinic (walk-in)
  • One Hundred Oaks on Thursdays from 8:00am – 11:30am
  • New Staff Orientation
  • OHC Comes to You events

Chest x-rays and/or lab work are offered free of charge at the Occupational Health Clinic and during All Aboard if you've received treatment for Latent TB or you are an employee with certain risk factors and documentation of a prior positive TB skin test. 

Remember, the TB skin test only counts if you have someone read it! Tests should be read 2 to 3 days after they are placed. Any physician, nurse practitioner or TB designee can read your TB skin test. TB designees are specially trained nurses, pharmacists or respiratory therapists who have completed our TB skin testing class. If you do not have access to someone who is qualified to read your skin test, come to the Occupational Health Clinic or any OHC Comes to You event.
