Does anyone know of somewhere I can get the PPD Tb test done in Dallas/Rockwall/Kaufman for preferably cheap? I'm attending TVCC ADN program in the Fall 09 and the orientation package said the health department in Kaufman would do a Tb test for $20. However, I went there for my Tetanus booster and HepB shots and they no longer give the Tb test which means I'm up a creek without a paddle. Help!

Check CareNow or PrimaCare or anyone of those "urgen care" type of places. I had mine done at Primacare before nursing school.

Go to a drugstore and have the pharmacist do it. Last year it cost me $17.50 where the urgent care center wanted to charge $50.00. Pharmacists are allowed to give immunizations in Texas and the TB test falls under immunizations.

If you are willing to drive to the Fort Worth side of the metroplex, Tarrant County Public Health administers the tuberculin skin tests for $20. They perform skin testing on a walk-in basis. Also, they do not administer any skin tests on Thursdays or Fridays since the injection site must be read within 48 hours.

Tarrant County Public Health has multiple locations, but I think the clinic in Bedford would be closest to you.

Have you ever attended a DCCCD school? If you have you can get them for free. Thats what I did, but if not the public health clinics are 20. Not like Dallas County Public health because they are more expensive. But the family clinics like The John West Family Clinic off of John West and Buckner. All their immunizations are 3.00 except they dont do TB, so if you need anything else like Hep, or Varicella or anything its 3.00. Thats where I get mine done. No questions asked. Just go in there and tell them what you need. good luck.
