    There's actually a birth dose for babies that are ATSI, travelling/living in Indigenous communities, migrant parents from high risk countries (SE Asia, India, PNG, South America, Africa, Middle East, Pacific Islands and some European countries) or those that will be visiting/living in high risk countries.

    So not standard for all babies, but standard for a fair whack of newborns in Australia.

    My son has already had chicken pox from childcare. We are all vaccinated. Even our pets. Grandparents got boosters before kids were born too.

    My views is it should be law and if you don't vax you should be reported for neglect. I'm very passionate about this after DS being on life support. Vaccines save lives. Simple really.

    I still respect everyone elses fears, choices but this is my view.

    It's probably not part of the vax schedule as Australia is much more vigilant in terms of immigrant health, when I applied for my de facto visa I had to have a full health check (blood tests, chest X-ray, breast exam, etc) whereas when we applied for our UK visas a couple years ago we didn't have to do anything in regards of health checks. I don't think offering the TB vax to newborns is UK wide, it would just be parts where they feel it's more of a problem. DS was born in a different council than our current one and the recommendation was to do it at 2 weeks old as it was more of an issue in that area, I believe our current council's recommendation is within the first year.

    Ohh thank you!! I had no idea. My GP never mentioned this. I will ask at my DD's next checkup. We fall into the above category.

    I agree. My traveling comment was just a general discussion about my thoughts on it following a couple other posts about traveling to countries unvaccinated.

    I completely understand severe anxiety, I'm sure many read my post about being scared to get on a plane a few weeks ago. I am completely frightened to form an attachment to my current pregnancy because I'm convinced the baby is already dead or will die and my son still sleeps with a breathing monitor because even at 22 months I'm still petrified of SIDS, or at his age SCDS (I think that's what they call it...) and a monitor is the only way I can try and get some sleep. But in most cases of anxiety, like a fear of spiders, it's not dangerous or effecting anyone else like the choice to anti-vax is. I think that's why people get so up in arms about it, because many of us are scared of the consequences of our children coming in contact with somebody who has made the choice not to vax, so we say what we can to try and get them to rethink their decision or to help somebody who is reading along and on the fence about what choice to make.

    The recommendations for BCG in Australia

    I work in a high risk area of Australia and easily refer at least one baby a day to their BCG.

    I guess those working in low-risk areas wouldn't be as familiar with the recommendations for it.

    Yikes!!

    The virus my son had is cycling it's next cycle. It comes in rounds apparently '2year cycles'. A baby died last week. 5 weeks old. I haven't slept nearly all week due to fear of what might be wrong with DS still. They are making a vaccine though so yay. Lol
