TB vaccination of babies in the first month after birth

Severe post-injection reactions are rare and will pass if detected and managed promptly.

The World Health Organization (WHO) says vaccines are safe, with very rare serious health events, and most reactions from vaccine use are usually mild and temporary.

With common reactions, parents can completely rest assured to take care of their children at home according to the instructions of medical staff.

For the Disease Control recommends that vaccination against tuberculosis (BCG) for babies early and at birth is the best way to help children prevent this dangerous disease.

Vaccinate babies for 1 month to 1 year after birth

Bcg tuberculosis vaccine (bacille Calmette-Guérin) is a live attenuated vaccine.
