[ARCHIVED] Nationwide Shortage of Tuberculin used for TB Skin Tests

 There is currently a nationwide shortage of tuberculin used for tuberculosis skin testing (TB skin tests). Because of the shortage, RCHD is no longer able to administer TB skin testing; however, KDHE, using CDC guidance, has provided instructions for how to use a screening tool to assess risk regarding exposure to tuberculosis. For more information, please call the clinic at 785-776-4779 x 7600.
