BCG ACIP Vaccine Recommendations
Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP)
Published in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR)
The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) provides advice and guidance to the Director of the CDC regarding use of vaccines and related agents for control of vaccine-preventable diseases in the civilian population of the United States. Recommendations made by the ACIP are reviewed by the CDC Director and, if adopted, are published as official CDC/HHS recommendations in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR).
CDC’s policies regarding tuberculosis (TB) and BCG vaccination have evolved since the publication of the joint ACET/ACIP recommendations on the use of BCG. Consult the TB website for current TB and BCG information.
