BCG vaccination is given to protect against tuberculosis (TB). BCG vaccine is no longer given routinely in the UK and it is becoming increasingly difficult to find staff that are skilled in giving this vaccine. At The Travel Clinic, we are skilled in tuberculin skin testing (TST) and BCG vaccine and routinely give BCG to travellers, healthcare workers and those needing occupational protection.
There is currently a national shortage of BCG vaccine and supplies are prioritised by the NHS. If you think you require BCG vaccination or tuberculin skin testing then please call us on 014 8897656.
