Services offered by Tuberculosis Control Program:

Please note:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), in order to maintain and accelerate the decline towards TB elimination, are directing communities to focus TB efforts on high-risk populations. 

Therefore, TB services are not provided for individuals with health insurance. Insured individuals should visit their doctor. TB services may also be available at community health centers, walk-in clinics and pharmacies. Individuals without health insurance will be assessed for eligibility based on risk for tuberculosis. 

TB testing services required as part of an adjustment of immigration status are not provided. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) provides a listing of qualified Civil Surgeons to conduct these evaluations. Adjustment of status applicants should obtain required TB services from their Civil Surgeon provider.
