Is the tuberculosis (TB) vaccine recommended or required?     

In the United States, the use of BCG vaccination is rarely indicated. BCG vaccination is not recommended for inclusion in immunization or TB control programs, and it is not recommended for most HCWs. In countries where TB is endemic, however, it is often administered to infants and small children.
