Why is BCG not used in Canada?

  • BCG is not used routinely for a number of reasons. TB is not widespread so the chances are small that infants and young children will become exposed. There can be serious side effects in those with serious immune system problems. The exception to this is First Nations or Inuit infants, who live in communities with high rates of TB. Lastly BCG makes the TB skin test difficult to understand since one cannot be sure if a positive result is due to infection with TB or vaccination with BCG.

I even asked my mom she said no...I didnt get itConfused

I got mine when I was 1!!! In portugal new borns also get them sometimes!! Portugal injects babies soon coz its much better!! I neva got a scar , thank god!! Hey I'll tell you wat happened today wen I was gonna get the BCG "again"!! I went in the room and sat down, the Nurse checked my skin test and compared it to a copy of other types of reactions happen in the skin test. She asked me where I was Born and I answered Portugal then she asked another Nurse "She's from portugal could she have?" and the other nurse checked on the internet to see when portugal injects the BCG. then the nurse asked me how long I was there for and I answered until I was 5 years old. Then she said that "You might have had it, as Portugal injects the BCG to Kids between 1 - 5" and she started checking both my arms for the scar but I didnt have it. then she asked me "When you were a baby, did your mother give you all of the injections?" and I said ya then the nurse asked "Did you get the BCG then?" I said I dont know. she then told me then I can't get mine done coz she was not exactly sure if I had my BCG already. Where I had my skin test, It was PURPLE!! other ppls had faded away!! then I got given a letter to take home and it was about me not needing the BCG at skool and that I wont be recalled for it next year. I got home and showed the letter to my mom n she said that I already got the BCG in portugal when I had my other injections as a baby such as injections on babies leg and arm.... SO I HAVE HAD MY BCG MORE THAN 11 YEARS AGO!!
