iconBCG vaccine

If the baby doesnt develop the typical ulcerative lesion after BCG vaccine then what could be the possible reasons and how to proceed?Is it necessary to have such lesion/scar to ensure effecacy of vaccine.

you did not mention the age of child. I think if the BCG reaction did not occur after some months it should be repeated.

Hello all,

Well,Nadia had already said its a baby and baby is a baby,not an adult(under an year is a baby).

Just wanted to ask if the BCG was given under skin as "BCG given to babies by the percutaneous method (using a device with several small needles) will not usually leave a scar.But a correctly intradermally administered BCG will normally leave a scar.Ask the doctor if it was percutaneous/intradermal?

Nadia ,see this site it might be helpful.

Takecare.

scar or ulceration is not necessary for BCG vaccine to be effective
