“Since not vaccinating an infant who is exposed to HIV but remains uninfected may increase the risk of disseminated tuberculosis, BCG vaccination should continue in settings where HIV infection and tuberculosis are both highly endemic until it is feasible to implement a policy of selective vaccination.

Clear goals should be established for the implementation of safe vaccination practices in HIV-infected infants and for reducing the burden of maternal and infant tuberculosis. More data are needed on the protective effect of BCG vaccination in HIV-infected infants and in HIV-exposed uninfected infants, as well as on the operational feasibility of deferred BCG vaccination In HIV-exposed infants.”
