Pinal County to resume tuberculosis screenings

Updated:

FLORENCE, Ariz. (AP) - Pinal County is again offering routine tuberculosis screenings.

County Health Department officials say the screenings were halted in mid-April due to a national shortage of the Tubersol solution for skin testing.

Several other counties around Arizona also had to temporarily stop routine TB testing because of the shortage including Pima County.

Pinal County's public health clinics will resume routine screenings on Friday.
