Since 1951, BCG vaccination is being conducted in India as a mass campaign. In this process, in addition to taking up organized groups such as schools, BCG vaccination centres are established in the rural and urban areas which the population of the neighbourhood visits for tuberculin testing and BCG vaccination. Publicity to obtain coverages is done by personal contacts and by means of publicity equipment. The output of such a programme is high enabling completion of most of the States by now but the observed coverages are shown to be small.
