TUCSON, Ariz. -- Pima County is temporarily suspending routine tuberculosis screenings starting next week.
County Health Department officials said the screenings normally offered at clinics will be halted as of April 15.
They said the screenings are expected to resume once a national shortage of the Tubersol solution for skin testing is resolved.
However, the County Health Department will continue testing people who have symptoms of tuberculosis.
The screenings cost $15 per person regardless of insurance.
