Hello doctor, this is the doctor, yesterday my child was 3 weeks old who did the bcg immunization, but the immunization drug has been open for more than 3 hours, but it is still being injected into my child, is that very dangerous for the doctor and does my child have to be immunized again?

1 Answer:

Hello Anto30, Thank you for the question.

The BCG vaccine is a vaccine that aims to protect against tuberculosis infection. This vaccine contains weakened bacteria which when injected into the body can trigger the formation of immune substances / antibodies. The BCG vaccine packaging consists of a vaccine powder and a liquid to dilute the vaccine. This liquid will be mixed into a glass containing the vaccine powder. This vaccine should not be used again or must be discarded after vaccination or within 6 hours after opening and mixing. Thus, if it is still open for 3 hours, this vaccine can still be used. If you still have versatility, you can return to consult with a pediatrician for a second opinion.

I hope this helps.

Dr. Aloisia
