Pima County resumed tuberculosis screenings on Monday.

The screenings resumed after a national shortage of the Tubersol solution for skin testing has been resolved, Pima County Health Department Officials say.

Tuberculosis skin tests are conducted at the county's tuberculosis clinic, 2980 E. Ajo Way.

The clinic is open 7:30 a.m. to noon Monday, Wednesday and Friday, from noon to 4 p.m. Tuesday and it's closed on Thursdays. Skin tests are $15 and available on a walk-in basis during clinic hours.

For more information call the health department’s tuberculosis clinic at 243-8450.
