There is really no need for concern. Firstly the BCG immunisation protects your baby against TB and an immunisation will not cause TB. The vaccine does not even contain the TB bacteria.If your baby does not seem to have had a successful BCG at birth the way forward is to do a Mantoux test which will answer the question as to whether she has resistance to TB or not. There is no need to rush to have a second BCG immunisation. The TB test can be done when your baby is 3 months or older and then once the result is known the paediatrician can decide whether she needs a second BCG or not.
