The world-wide programme of mass BCG vaccination started in 1921' and used extensively since the forties has provided evidence that BCG vaccine has a protective value. This was confirmed by studies done on experimental animals.2 Despite this, no vaccination has become more controversial than BCG vaccination in recent times. The protection conferred by BCG vaccination in children is important because of the serious consequences of tuberculosis in them. The aim of this study was to assess the immunological response of children to BCG vaccination.
