BCG vaccine

The National Immunisation Advisory Committee (NIAC), an independent expert group on immunisation and the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) have both recommended that BCG vaccine does not now need to be given routinely to all children in Ireland.

The Department of Health will make a decision on NIAC and HIQA recommendations.

The HSE must await instruction from the Department of Health regarding BCG vaccination.
