TB vaccine
If I have been vaccinated against TB in school (I''m 33 now) do I need to be vaccinated again? Ad does the vaccine protect against all forms of TB?

Thanks!

The effectiveness of the TB vaccine that you received as a child, can be up to 75% but it does not protect you against all forms of TB.
