    Testing positive for TB just means that you have been exposed some time in your life. Even if you got an immunization for TB, you would test positive. The only thing to do is get an xray to confirm that you don't have any active TB in your lungs. You would just get annual xrays, no more TB tests now that you have tested positive. If this test was for employment, your employer should pay for the xrays. If it was for school, the xrays should also be covered by the testing facility. Having a positive TB test is not a big deal, don't stress about it.

    You can get xrays and medical assistance through County Health Services.
