BS Vaccine Drug Information | BCG

The Bacillus Calmette-Guérin vaccine is used to prevent tuberculosis (TB) in people who do not have the disease but are at risk. This vaccine is not used to treat tuberculosis. The BCG vaccine contains live and weak bacteria, and the injection of this vaccine produces antibodies against Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacteria and provides protection in the body.

 

Dosage and method of vaccination

Read the package leaflet carefully before starting treatment with the BCG vaccine. This brochure will help you to get comprehensive information about the drug and its possible side effects.

Get the BCG vaccine exactly as your doctor advised.

The dose of BCG vaccine depends on the age of the person.

The BCG vaccine should be injected into your skin by a specialist.

 

Contraindications to the use of BCG vaccine

Note the expiration date of this vaccine and do not take the medicine if it has expired.

Never give the BCG vaccine to another person, even if you have the same symptoms.

Check for drug interactions, and if you are taking a drug that interacts with this medication, talk to your doctor about using your medications.

 

Use of BCG vaccine during pregnancy and lactation

During pregnancy and lactation, you should not use the drug arbitrarily and without consulting your doctor. This medicine can have harmful effects on the fetus or on yourself. Your doctor will prescribe this vaccine if you find it necessary to inject it.

 

The effect of BCG vaccine on driving and working with machines

Getting the BSE vaccine can make you feel sick, so you need to be careful before driving or operating machinery.

 

 Drug interactions BSJ vaccine

Drug interactions may alter drug performance and increase the risk of serious side effects. Make a list of all the medicines (including prescription / over-the-counter and herbal medicines) you use and share them with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not change the dose of your medicine without consulting your doctor or stop taking the medicine.

Some medications that may interact with the BCG vaccine include antibiotics (such as isoniazid, rifampin, ethambutol, pyrazinamide), corticosteroids (such as hydrocortisone, prednisone), chemotherapy drugs that treat cancer, and immune-boosting drugs. (Such as cyclosporine, tacrolimus).

Other vaccines may be given at the same time as the vaccine, but must be given with a separate syringe at different sites. If your doctor determines that you can not get the BCG vaccine at the same time as other live vaccines, you should get it at least 4 weeks later.

The BCG vaccine may interfere with the tuberculin skin test and cause erroneous results. Tell your doctor if you have received the BCG vaccine before having this skin test.

 

Special warnings and precautions while taking the BCG vaccine

Some medications may not be prescribed under certain conditions, and some medications may be prescribed if additional treatment is needed; Therefore, it is best for your doctor to be aware of the following before taking the BCG vaccine:

  • If you have recently had burns or skin problems.
  • If your tuberculin skin test is positive.
  • If you have recently had an infection or fever.
  • If you have a history of allergic reactions to the vaccine.
  • If your immune system is damaged (AIDS, leukemia).
  • If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, it is important that your doctor knows about this.

 

Side effects of BCG vaccine

All medications can cause side effects. But many consumers also do not experience any side effects. Some of the side effects go away shortly after taking the medicine. In case of persistent side effects, the physician should be informed:

Pain and swelling or redness around the injection site

Swollen lymph nodes

Mild fever, bone pain, muscle aches

Important Note: Normally, your doctor or nurse will ask you to wait a few minutes after vaccination to make sure that you are not experiencing any adverse reactions to the vaccine. Although allergic reactions are very rare, you should see a doctor right away if you develop shortness of breath after vaccination or any severe swelling or skin rash.

Consult your doctor if you have any other symptoms that you feel may be due to the BSE vaccine.

 

Overdose of BCG vaccine (drug poisoning)

Because this vaccine is prescribed and injected by your doctor and specialist, there is no possibility of drug poisoning.
