Contact Lambton Public Health to see if you qualify and to book your appointment. All students from Lambton College should contact the college directly to complete the test.

TB skin testing

For a skin test, you will have a small amount of non-infectious tuberculosis protein injected under the skin of your arm. This protein cannot spread the disease. It can take 2 to 3 days for your skin to react to the injection for a positive result. This is why a second appointment is required. If it is positive, further testing will be needed.
