I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for the TB Blood Test. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
As a teacher and child care worker we are required to get the TB test done every few years. It’s a valid test that helps us to help take care of our children. If you’re supposed to get one they’re not too bad. This is coming from someone who doesn’t like needles or doctors! It’s a very simple test and worth it to keep the kids safe from TB. The earlier tests sometimes would give a false positive. But these new tests seem to have ironed all that out. Check out TB Blood Test and learn more about how this test is helping the medical professionals and educators. All you have to do is set up an appointment with your local doctor or health care provider. The old way they would give you a small stick. Mine have all been in my crook of my elbow. You go back two days later to have it read. Red raised area means TB, flat area means no TB. Couldn’t be simpler! All mine have always been non raised areas.
That’s the old way. The new test you have one doctor visit and then you’re given your results. Once and done. No more two visits. The new skin test isn’t a skin test at all it’s a blood test, plain and simple. It’s the new advance in technology we’ve been waiting for. 110 years in the making and we have a completely objective and reliable test. Finally! It’s the most accurate way to test for TB. They only draw 3 ml of fresh blood to do the test. The best part is once and done. You go in. They take blood. You go home and you don’t go back! Once and done and it’s a great way to take the new test! Make sure you ask for it the next time you go! When was the last time you had the TB test? Ask for the new one!
