What is a BCG Scar Check Service?
Your Local Pharmacy provide a BCG Scar Check Service, which involves a healthcare professional taking a vaccination history and physically checking the arm for a scar to see whether that person has received the BCG vaccination.
- This service is suitable for all patients over 18+ years of age.
- If a scar is visible, the healthcare professional will provide a certificate to confirm the presence of the BCG mark.
- If a scar is not visible, they will provide advice on the next steps.
