Also referred to as a PPD skin test, this shot screens for tuberculosis bacteria in the body. The TB screening can be given as a one step or two step test: first, the forearm is injected with a small amount of the tuberculin bacteria; next, the injection site and skin reaction is checked 48 to 72 hours later. Quantiferon TB Gold blood test is also available and recommended if your TB skin test usually test positive. Note:
Tuberculosis test results may come back negative if the bacteria have been in the body for less than one year. Results may require follow up.
