Arizona’s Pima County Health Department has announced the resumption of routine TB skin tests beginning May 20, at the Tuberculosis Clinic, 2980 E. Ajo Way. The health department temporarily suspended routine skin testing because of a national shortage of the Tubersol solution used in the test. The clinic is open from 7:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays; and from 12:00 noon to 4:00 p.m. on Tuesdays. It is closed on Thursdays. TB skin tests cost $15 and are available on a walk-in basis. For more information, contact the TB Clinic at (520) 243–8450.
