    BCG is still given at birth to babies born into high risk groups. These includes those who have a family history of tuberculosis, ethnic minorities at increased risk of TB and those born in areas with a high prevalence.

    BCG is also given to those who may be at risk of increased exposure to tuberculosis such as health care workers (2).
