Annual TB screenings are provided by Occupational Health to all employees.
UCLA Health employees must complete the TB screening process prior to their start of employment date and annually thereafter.
New Process for Tuberculosis (TB) Annual Screening
Effective August 21, 2023, only employees with risk factors for TB (based on the Annual TB Risk Questionnaire) will need to obtain a blood draw to screen for TB. This is to be completed annually during the month your TB clearance is due to expire.
Follow these instructions:
- Determine the month you are due for TB Screening. Usually, it is the month in which you were hired. If you are unsure, your immediate supervisor can assist.
- Log into your MyChart and complete the Annual TB Risk Questionnaire.
- After completing the Annual TB Risk Questionnaire, you will be given directions on your next steps.
If you do not have risk factors, the survey will end with a reminder to complete the Tuberculosis Education module.
If you have risk factors, a TB SYMPTOM Questionnaire will launch automatically. Complete it, then proceed to OH, or a UCLA blood draw clinic, for TB labs blood draw. Finally, complete the Tuberculosis Education module.
Obtaining an Annual TB Test
Employees are eligible to obtain an annual TB test within one year of their most recent TB screening. Annual TB tests obtained outside of UCLA are not covered by Occupational Health.
