This is a list of vaccine-related topics.. A vaccine is a biological preparation that improves immunity to a particular disease.A vaccine typically contains an agent that resembles a disease-causing microorganism, and is often made from weakened or killed forms of the microbe or its toxins.

      1. Introduction. Bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG), the live attenuated vaccine against tuberculosis (TB), is one of the world’s most widely used vaccines with billions of doses administered, including current yearly administration of millions of doses at birth to protect newborns from disseminated forms of TB,.Epidemiological studies have noted an unanticipated reduction in all-cause. Seven trials reporting tuberculous deaths showed a protective effect from BCG vaccine of 71% (RR, ; 95% Cl, to ), and five studies reporting on meningitis showed a protective effect from BCG vaccine of 64% (OR, ; 95% Cl, to ).

    A vaccination schedule is a series of vaccinations, including the timing of all doses, which may be either recommended or compulsory, depending on the country of residence.A vaccine is an antigenic preparation used to produce active immunity to a disease, in order to prevent or reduce the effects of infection by any natural or "wild" pathogen..

In Canada, tuberculosis was a major cause of morbidity and mortality throughout the first half of the 20th century, affecting the youngest to the oldest population strata.The BCG vaccine was used in mass vaccination programs in only two provinces, Québec and Newfoundland, while other provinces restricted its use to targeted Québec, BCG vaccination was delivered as an.

31 In the case of BCG (bacillus Calmette-Guérin) vaccination against tuberculosis, developed in France inconcerns about efficacy and safety led to very different patterns of vaccine.

This was to be both the largest vaccination campaign ever undertaken and also the first one to use the BCG vaccine outside the controlled circumstances of the clinic. Photo: Indonesia mounted the world's largest campaign against yaws -- curable through penicillin -- in the s, employing large numbers of mobile male nurses working in the field.

How effective is BCG vaccination. The BCG vaccine is made from a weakened strain of TB bacteria. Because the bacteria in the vaccine is weak, it triggers the immune system to protect against the disease.

This gives good immunity to people who receive it without actually causing the disease. The vaccine is 70 to 80% effective against the most.

BCG vaccination given at birth, endemicity, of nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM), and altered immune response especially in very young children as a result of functional immaturity of immune cells, among other reasons, make TST of limited diagnostic value on its own, although a positive TST does suggest recent infection in children and must trigger action.
