tuberculosis information

A vaccine for tuberculosis, B.C.G., was administered to children in France in the 1920s. But despite having a positive impact on death rates, other countries were reluctant to rollout the vaccine.

Understanding the importance of vaccinations, Boots produced an eight-page leaflet on the B.C.G vaccine for medical professionals in 1947. Not only did it contain the latest scientific information, but it also highlighted the vaccine’s efficacy and safety-record.
