BCG is a live vaccine derived from cow TB. It may rarely cause side-effects, but this is usually very easy to identify with a swoolen gland in the right axilla (armpit). It does not cause TB, but rather protects against it. Only in VERY rare instances when a child's immune system is severely weakened may it cause more severe disease, but this is not a concern for the average child.
