Tuberculosis

Florida Department of Health in Seminole County

One of the Florida Department of Health’s missions, in a vast array of services geared toward the improvement of Florida’s Health, is to eliminate tuberculosis (TB) in the state through administration of a statewide TB program that supports the Florida System of Tuberculosis Care.

Our TB program is committed to protecting our community from the spread of TB by providing coordinated care to persons with active TB disease, their close contacts and other persons at high risk for latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI), and to manage complicated TB patients. In addition, we provide community healthcare and non-healthcare provider training and technical assistance related to TB control and prevention; assure accurate case reporting; perform program monitoring and evaluation. For information on the CDC Division of TB Elimination visit www.cdc.gov/tb.

  • TB Skin Testing - tests provided on a walk-in basis

  • Treatment for Latent TB Infection - initial assessment and medication, and monthly medication refills.

  • Active TB Management - medication administration through directly observed therapy and home visits, routine assessments and monitoring, and required lab testing and chest x-rays provided at the Sanford office.

  • Refugee Health Assessments - includes vaccinations, testing, and immigration form completion and validation. Assessments done by appointment.
