Contact a tuberculosis service

Tuberculosis (TB) services provide clinical diagnosis, management and public health follow-up of people with, or suspected of having, tuberculosis.

They provide free medical assessment, screening and BCG vaccination clinics.

BCG vaccine availability:

Since 2012, there have been periodic interruptions to the supply of BCG in Australia.

Appointments are essential for all TB services throughout Queensland.
