Windermere Medical Center Office Information

Having a positive test because you received the BCG vaccine is very common. Your job wants to know if you have active TB. There are two ways to get this done. One option is to have the Mantoux test(ppd test) done where they place medication under your skin and check within 48-72 hrs if the test is positive. If positive then you will need chest xray to prove you have no signs of active TB. Other option is to have a blood draw test called a Quantiferon test(more expensive if paying out of pocket) that if negative will require no further workup.
