Alternate options available for individuals with a COVID vaccination.

Individuals getting the COVID vaccine could experience a delay in being able to get a TB test. There are options for TB testing which do not include injection of the purified protein derivative (PPD).  An individual can have a blood sample taken and tested via the Quantiferon® TB test (approved since 2001), or the regulations allow for a chest x-ray and certification by a health care provider.  If individuals choose the PPD injection, there may be a delay before they are able to work around children.  It is up to the individual to choose the option that works best for them.
