Passport Health Oklahoma offers Tuberculin Skin Testing, also commonly referred to as TST, TB, or PPD testing. This test is often required for employment or admission to school. In particular, those working or entering the medical field must show proof of a negative TB test.
This skin test is used to determine if an individual has been exposed to or is infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis, often just referred to as Tuberculosis or TB. A small amount of the tuberculin is placed under the skin on the forearm with a return appointment scheduled 48-72 hours later for examination of the administration site.
We also offer a blood test called a T-spot for those that are unable to return 48-72 hours after their initial visit.
Ask about our on-site service for your work or school group. Passport Health Oklahoma will send trained staff to your location to provide the TB testing and will return 2-3 days later for reading.

Vitamin B-12 Injections
Vitamin B-12 is required for proper red blood cell formation, neurological function, and DNA synthesis. It may also increase energy levels and promote a strong immune system.
Some individuals, especially older adults and those with pernicious anemia have difficulty absorbing vitamin B-12. Several studies confirm that up to 15% of adults are deficient in vitamin B12. Common medications such as omeprazole (Prilosec®), lansoprazole (Prevacid®), cimetidine (Tagamet®), famotidine (Pepcid®), ranitidine (Zantac®), and Metformin® may decrease absorption of vitamin B-12.
All vitamin B-12 injections at Passport Health are given by licensed nurses with extensive injection experience. Monthly B-12 injections are an easy option at Passport Health, call and schedule an appointment today.
