My son is 5 and a half month old. His BCG injection neither got swelled nor left any mark. What should we do?? injection was not given in front of us, he was taken to NICU and we were not allowed inside.

Hello there, not having a mark, swelling or a scar post BCG vaccination does not necessarily mean a poor uptake of the vaccine. If you are sure of the vaccine having being given, then there is no need to repeat the BCG vaccine even if there is no scar formation.
