within 2weeks after birth... > bcg vaccination

on 4 months of age..... > the same as on 2 months of age
on 6 months of age...... > the same as on 2 months of age
on 9 months of age....... > vaccination against poliomyelitis
on 12 months of age..... > MMr vaccine
on 18 months of age...... > MMr vaccine, DPT vaccine
I hope I answered your question
It is used only for newborns at risk in the USA
Dear sir, the BCG vaccine is given to about 80% of newborn symptoms world wide according to the national immunization program. The USA immunizes only newborns at risk ( family history of TB) and not all newborns due to low incidence of TB in the USA. the initial dose should be during the first week while a following dose should be at 2 months of age . I hope you find this helpful.
