Following a review of the World Health Organization (WHO) annual global report on tuberculosis (TB) for 2020, all relevant TRAVAX country specific pages have been updated to reflect the latest TB vaccination recommendations. Where the risk of TB being multi-drug resistant (MDR-TB) is high, this has been highlighted on the relevant country pages of TRAVAX. Both the Green Book and NICE guidelines describe this as an indication for Bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG) vaccination for certain travellers.
The TRAVAX TB page and individual country pages should be consulted for further information.
