Tarrant County Public Health’s Tuberculosis Elimination works in
cooperation with the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS)
to provide incoming displaced persons from around the world with
screenings for general health, nutrition and tuberculosis (TB).
General health screening includes testing for HIV, blood pressure
checks, vision testing and parasite testing as well as screening for
pre-existing conditions, medication usage and pregnancy. Blood tests,
weights and heights are evaluated for nutrition. Skin testing,
immigration medical evaluation and chest x-rays are done as needed to
evaluate for tuberculosis. Immunizations for immigration requirements
are done in TB/Refugee for people that are newly arrived, or are older
arrivals with certain eligibilities. Adults as well as children are
serviced in the TB/Refugee program.
