TB testing (surveillance)
The tuberculin skin test (PPD) is administered at the Student Health Services (SHS) in Aptos, room 912, during the following days and times:
Spring Semester 2013
New: please make an appointment for your TB test. This helps us minimize your wait time.
You must return to SHS to have your arm looked at (to get the results of the TB test) between 48 and 72 hours after having the PPD placed. If the results are not read during this window of time, the test has to be administered (and paid for!) again.
PPDs are also given on the Watsonville campus on the 3rd Tuesday of every month from 10am -12 pm and read on the following Thursday from 12pm to 2pm.
Check in with the clinic for cost; payment must be made in cash or check only at the time of the first visit.
Please see our main page for the current week's hours of operations.
