Bacillus Calmette-Guérin

Det har antytts att de som har erhållit BCG-vaccin mot TBC i barndomen skulle kunna vara skyddade mot COVID19.

Men en israelisk studie ger inget stöd åt en sådan tanke.

”Although the BCG vaccine is given to protect against tuberculosis, it has also been found to exert nonspecific beneficial effects such as protection against other infectious disease and to enhance immunogenicity of certain vaccines, such as the influenza vaccine.”

”In conclusion, this study does not support the idea that BCG vaccination in childhood has a protective effect against COVID-19 in adulthood.”
