Tuberculosis (TB skin testing)

A tuberculin skin test (TST) is used to see if a person has been exposed to tuberculosis and perhaps has latent tuberculosis infection or active tuberculosis disease.

Where to get TB testing

For students who live in Huron and Perth counties, you can get the required tuberculin skin test (TST) for your school program through:

A healthcare provider can also perform a publicly funded TST for the following situations:

  • Medical necessity, such as a person who is immune-compromised or undergoing treatment that would make them more susceptible to TB disease.
  • A person under age 65 who will be admitted to a long-term care home.

If you have a medical reason for needing a TST and you don't have a healthcare provider, we can offer you testing. HPPH also provides TSTs for people who have been exposed to active TB. Contact us to book an appointment.
