Bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG) is a vaccine for tuberculosis (TB) disease. This vaccine is not widely used in the United States, but it is often given to infants and small children in other countries where TB is common. BCG does not always protect people from getting TB.
In 2013, a total of 9,582 TB cases were reported. That’s a rate of 3 cases per 100,000 persons.
In 2013, almost two-thirds of reported TB cases in the United States occurred among foreign-born persons.
