If you have had the TB vaccine, you will show a false positive?

Yes, there will probably be a reaction that comes up as positive. But, the injection site is normally still visible on the arm to confirm that a vaccination was done. If not, try to remember back to when you were vaccinated and see if you can get it documented.

In the UK, most were done via the school authorities as standard and it's commonly known to the civil surgeons doing the examinations.

Hope this helps!

My wife has her TB tests documented... if she has a false positive, will the civil surgeon understand it is from the previous TB vaccines, or would he still order a chest xray?

Normally, they wouldn't even do a TB test but go straight to x-ray- that is what happens in European countries where the BCG (TB vaccine) is common.
