 en SHORT COMMUNICATION - Age at BCG administration during routine immunization
R.D. Wammanda , M.J. Gambo and I. Abdulkadir

Abstract

In Nigeria, as part of the National Programme on Immunization (NPI), BCG should be given at birth. A survey of the ages at which mothers bring their children for BCG vaccination showed that only 22% of children receive their BCG within the first 3 days of life and 36.2% within the first 7 days of life. The place of birth and whether a child was sick enough at birth to require hospital admission appears to be an important factor affecting the age at BCG administration
