BCG Vaccination

posted by olivehealthtravelclinic - 07/07/2018 08:35

Due to manufacturing issues at the Statens Serum Institut (SSI) in Denmark, there are no licensed BCG vaccines in the UK. In 2016, the UK Government took the decision to start using an alternative BCG vaccine made by InterVax, a Canadian company. The vaccine has a good safety record and is thought to be as effective as the SSI BCG vaccination, and is now used across the NHS.
