Our Specialist BCG Nurse Prescriber runs a child BCG immunisation clinic on Friday mornings.
Due to manufacturing issues at the Statens Serum Institut (SSI) in Denmark, there are no licensed BCG vaccines in the UK. In 2016, the UK Government took the decision to start using an alternative BCG vaccine made by InterVax, a Canadian company. The vaccine has a good safety record and is thought to be as effective as the SSI BCG vaccination, and is now used across the NHS.
Although alternative unlicensed BCG vaccines are also being used in the UK, at Olive Health, London we only use the InterVax BCG vaccination in line with the NHS and Public Health protocols.
We receive a high number of GP referrals for the service and the clinic is therefore run by appointment only.
