A TB skin test is not a vaccine. If you have received a live vaccine in the 28 days before the TB skin test, there are timing recommendations to wait to ensure the live vaccine doesn't interfere with the TB skin test results.
Once a TB skin test results are measured (48-72 hours after the first appointment), there are no timing recommendations to wait to receive any other vaccine, whether the vaccine is live or inactivated (killed).
