Aim

This observational study aims to investigate the effect that childhood vaccinations have on people’s health with particular interest in the BCG vaccine, as there have been variations in the age at which it is given to children over time and geographical area.

Findings 

The results of this study will be published in academic papers in due course.

Methodology

Interviews with adults and children in population groups that may have been affected by different immunisation policies. An initial sample will be recruited via centrally-held databases. Individuals with similar characteristics will then be invited to take part.
