Screening and targeted testing is a key strategy for controlling and preventing infection on college and university campuses. Early detection provides an opportunity to promote the health of affected individuals through prompt diagnosis and treatment and prevents the spread of disease
What is TB? Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease caused by germs that are spread from person to person through the air. TB usually affects the lungs, but it can also affect other parts of the body, such as the brain, the kidneys, or the spine. A person with active TB can die if they do not get treatment. Does a positive test mean I have the disease?
International Students are required to complete a question and answer screening form. Only those students with identifiable risk factors for latent tuberculosis infection and/or TB disease should be tested One of the identifiable risk factors is where you are from and where you have traveled to in the last five years.
Skin Test is free of charge (blood test)IGRA is approximately $50 – increased sensitivity and specificity Either test is positive – chest x-ray is required – Chest x-rays are available for student at ValleyCare in Pleasanton for $66.10
Chest x-ray = negative Referred for an INH consultation – 7 month course of medication is offered to prevent the disease from becoming active – you will be referred to your primary care provider. If the chest-x-ray = positive you will be referred for medical treatment
If you have had a positive skin test in the past – please let your provider know ~ you will receive a chest x-ray instead of a skin test.
I look forward to seeing you in the Health and Wellness Center!!!!!
