I just received my vaccine and now my facility wants a TB test. What should I do?
If vaccination has been given and testing needs to be performed, the CDC recommends deferring TB Skin test, Quantiferon Gold, or T-Spot until 4 weeks after COVID-19 vaccine 2-dose completion.
Keep in mind the timing of any needed TB test updates as you plan vaccination for COVID-19. If possible, complete TB testing prior to receiving the vaccine. However, if this is not possible, work with your credentialing analyst to partner with the facility for next steps and possible exceptions.
Please refer to the CDC for additional information.
