Vaccination

Home » About TB » Vaccination

The Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) vaccine can provide effective protection against TB in up to eight out of 10 people who are given it.

Currently, BCG vaccinations are only recommended for groups of people who are at a higher risk of developing TB. This includes children living in areas with high rates of TB or those who have close family members from countries with high TB rates.
