Tuberculosis Control

Florida Department of Health in Taylor County


Tuberculosis control is a cooperative effort by our Health Care providers and the Nurse TB Case Manager who monitor tuberculosis in Taylor County. This program utilizes skin testing, chest x-rays, sputum testing, and medications if indicated. Medications are used to treat infections of Mycobacterium Tuberculosis and prophylaxis for individuals exposed to active cases or with a reactive skin test.
