|It seems much more likely that some of the world's BCG strains are virtually useless, some confer moderate protection, and some-perhaps only a few-are highly potent. Which is which cannot at present be told. Because BCG vaccination is the major method of tuberculosis control in all but a few highly developed nations, it is particularly tragic that the use of scarce resources to administer BCG must still be based on blind faith.|

Okay, being new here on MDC, I just realized there is a vaccination section and this is just a subforum (duh!!!) So I wonder if there is a way to move this post to the main vaccination forum since I was hoping to get opinions from those who vaccinate, those who do selective and/or delayed vaccinations, as well as those who choose not to vaccinate. I guess the reason why is that I keep wavering. Like now with this swine flu thing, I start to worry for my lo, should I or should I not vaccinate? How would other people decide? I know I'd worry if I was still in the U.S., but being here in a foreign country, the worries multiply for me. I know I originally asked specifically about the BCG, but I really wonder about other vacs too.
