Practitioners should refer to the most recent CDC guidelines regarding vaccination of patients who are receiving drugs that adversely affect the immune system. If experienced, these tend to have a Severe expression. The BCG Vaccine, USP, should be reconstituted with 2 mL for these patients to administer the appropriate dose, which is 50% of the adult dose. Antithymocyte Globulin: (Severe) Live virus vaccines should generally not be administered to an immunosuppressed patient. If immunization is necessary, choose an alternative to live vaccination, or, consider a delay or change in the immunization schedule. BCG vaccination given at birth, endemicity, of nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM), and altered immune response especially in very young children as a result of functional immaturity of immune cells, among other reasons, make TST of limited diagnostic value on its own, although a positive TST does suggest recent infection in children and must trigger action. A history of BCG vaccination does not contraindicate tuberculin skin testing, but BCG vaccination may cause tuberculin skin test reactivity.
