The BCG vaccine helps protect children from tuberculosis, with more information on this infectious disease available at the RCH Kids Health information website: http://www.rch.org.au/kidsinfo/fact_sheets/TB_tuberculosis/
RCH runs an outpatient clinic once a week that provides BCG vaccine to infants less than 12 months of age. This clinic is run on Tuesday mornings (9am - 1230pm).
Due to high demand for appointments the RCH BCG clinic do not run a waitlist.
A general practitioner or specialist referral is required to attend this clinic.
We have developed an information handout regarding BCG vaccine
A number of RCH staff also provide private outpatient clinic appointments, which includes BCG vaccine delivery and other travel advice. Please go to MVEC BCG website for more information on these.
