A PPD is a two-visit process, requiring 2 trips to Student Health Services.

  1. At the first visit, PPD give, you will receive a small shot of PPD (purified protein derivative) under the top layer of skin.  This causes a bump or welt to form.  This usually goes away in a few hours.
  2. At the second visit, PPD read, 48-72** hours after your first, a provider will check the area to see if you had a strong reaction to the test.

**You must return within 48-72 hours after the PPD give appointment to have your PPD read.  If you return earlier than 48 hours or later than 72 hours your PPD read is not valid and the PPD will not count towards the compliance requirements for your program.
