Walk-in Medical Care provides the Tetanus booster for patients that receive a cut, scrape, or puncture wound. The tetanus booster protects against tetanus and diphtheria.
PPD (Tb test)
Tb is an infectious disease primarily affecting the lungs. Tb is caused by a bacterium called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Common symptoms of Tb may include a prolonged cough, weakness, night sweats, fever, weight loss, loss of appetite, etc.
Tb tests are available in all Walk-in Medical Care locations. The Tb skin test is used to assess whether the individual has developed an immune response to the bacteria. A small amount of tuberculin is injected into the skin and 48-72 hours later trained medical staff can read the results.
