Post-vaccination retests in school children after an interval of eleven years show that the majority of the vaccinated has maintained a level of allergy comparable to that found one year after vaccination. It is possible that some of the children whose allergy has waned have been reinfected with atypical bacilli setting up a low-grade, ‘non-specific’ sensitivity. Other children show levels of allergy suggesting that they have been infected with tubercle bacilli setting up a high degree of allergy.
