[Q&A] Vaksin BCG

Question: Doc, anak saya kini 5bulan 4minggu and di dalam buku vaksination tertera telah di suntik BCG semasa lahir. Tapi sehingga kini tiada scar/nanah or any symptom that she had that injections before. bile tanya Klinik kesihatan since 1st month, they said will wait n see next month till now. no symptom or tanda2. Adakah kena suntik lagi sekali doctor? and is there any complication if inject 2 times? please advise doc. Thank you very much. (Shamini)

Answer: Tidak perlu, bukan semua akan mempunyai reaksi kulit sedemikian. Di Malaysia, Sekiranya no scar – akan diberi BCG vaksin pada umur 7 tahun.
