My baby was given BCG injection when she was 2weeks old and till now she is 3months+, the mark is not showing. Should I take her back to be given another one or what should I do?

Sometimes the BCG is given too deep instead of into the skin. Usually to confirm in case of no BCG scar, we will do a mantoux test to see if there is a reaction expected for someone who has had BCG. If there is none after 72 hours, we will give the BCG again as long as child is healthy(a normal Chest Xray may be needed at times)
