BCG Vaccination

Currently out of stock from the manufacturer. Please follow us on twitter for updates.

At Private GP Services we offer Mantoux testing to check immunity to TB and the BCG injection if necessary. Mantoux testing before BGC is not necessary for children under the age of 6 years - they are able to have the immunisation without a test. It is safe to vaccinate children from the age of 1 day old.

Worldwide the incidence of TB is on the increase. The World Health Organisation is warning of the threat of drug resistant TB. New figures from the UK Health Protection Agency show that TB is increasing in most regions of this country, with London and the West Midlands continuing to have the highest rates.

The doctors at Private GP Services have been trained through the chest clinic at Broomfield Hospital to offer this service.
