BCG vaccination before 3 months
In line with recommendations, vaccine coverage is higher in Île-de-France (59.5%) than among at-risk children living outside this region (46.7%). Where both parents come from a country with a high rate of TB, coverage is 80.5% for children under 3 months in Île-de-France and 60.4% elsewhere.
All other things being equal, vaccination is also more frequent among children who are followed by a paediatrician or in a mother-and-child healthcare centre.
