The national shortage of TUBERSOL® used in the administration of PPD tuberculin skin tests appears to be resolved and is now widely available. Providers should administer PPD tuberculin skin tests that were deferred due to the shortage. Please make every effort to complete all deferred testing within the next 30 days. If you are unable to meet this timeframe, please work with your Regional Office to establish an acceptable timeframe to complete your deferred testing. If you have any questions, you may also contact Joan Brundick at 573-751-6308 or send an email to email@example.com.
