County Health Clinics to Again Offer Routine TB Testing

7/2/2013

FLORENCE – A national shortage of Tubersol solution, the solution used to test for the tuberculosis (TB) infection, forced several Arizona counties to temporarily halt routine TB testing in April. Pinal County’s Public Health Clinics have been able to recover from the shortage and now have sufficient supplies of the testing solution to begin offering routine TB testing again.

Medical caregivers, teachers and childcare workers as well as some other occupations require screening for TB. This is considered ‘routine screening’ and Pinal County’s Public Health Clinics will resume routine screening on Friday, July 5. Routine screening is also available at most urgent care centers or physicians’ offices.

Public Health Clinics are located in major population centers around the county. For a complete list with locations and hours, go to http://1.usa.gov/19Tr1wt.

Pinal County’s website features a host of information pertaining to county services, tourism, road projects, public health and much more. Explore www.pinalcountyaz.gov and discover Pinal County’s wide open opportunity.
