TB cured immigrant - now in the US

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



I was diagnosed with TB and had undergone treatment at SLEC for 6 months. Thankfully now I'm in the US. 

As advised by the health officer in our port of entry, I got in touch with our state's Department of Health. The person I spoke with told me that someone will get in touch with me for further instructions. It has been 2 days since then but no call. I'm still in the process of calling the office again to follow up.


Is anyone familiar with what the next steps are for my case? Can you guys share what your experience was post-treatment/arrival to the US? Thank you in advance, and I really appreciate it.

My step daughter only had latent TB, so she didn't have to go through the treatments.  However, once she arrived in the US, she was required to go to the health department for an appointment to discuss her case.  At the appointment they required an additional chest x-ray and an offer optional treatments for free.  It took over a month before they contacted us to schedule the appointment.  So I would say be patient, as the wait time may be shorter or longer depending on where you live.

They'll call you. You don't need to run them down. Everyone with your history does a follow up so this very normal.
