thank you Alison I also have the handout on that info. And yes my child probably has a weak immune system but right now I just want to wave the TB testing or avoid it until it is necessary. Actually in his 3 years of life no doctor has ever suggested we get a TB test, so oviouslly it must not be medically necessary if they've never recommended it right? I do think here in CA we have alot of immigrants from other countries coming here both legally and illegally, I think that is the only reason why they are trying to make people get it here in CA before they enter school.
