Tuberculosis

Regardless of age, all incoming students are required to complete the tuberculosis screening (page 2) portion of the Immunization Record Form.

The Tuberculosis (TB) Screening Questionnaire is required for all incoming students as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Virginia Department of Health. The Tuberculosis (TB) Screening Questionnaire must be completed and submitted within the last 6 months.

If a student answers ‘yes’ to any question in the TB Screening section, a Tuberculosis test (TB test) or blood test must be performed within 6 months of beginning classes. The Immunization Office must have the following documentation:

  • Date placed
  • Date read (48-72 hours after placement)
  • The results in # (mm) form

If the TB test is positive or the student has a history of positive TB, the Immunization Office must have a copy of the test results along with a copy of the most recent chest x-ray report. If a student received treatment for TB or LTBI the student must provide documentation of medication, date started, and date completed.
