Abstract

Simultaneous smallpox and BCG vaccination given to infants of 0-2 years of age have not produced any untoward side effects of reactions. Heterologous antigens of the two vaccines do not appear to compete with each other. Immune response to smallpox vaccination is good and post vaccination tuberculin allergy is fairly high. Simultaneous smallpox and BCG vaccination can be carried out safely and on a mass scale in infants above 3 months of age. In case of infants between 0-3 months it would be desirable to do the secondary smallpox vaccination at the earliest opportunity preferably at the end of one year.
