Double dose of bcg should not cause any problem to the child. Only thing the child may have two bcg scars. Rest assured there are no side effects to the child. Regards

Good morning,Please do not worry. I can understand that you must be concerned. Usually it should not create a major problem. If you find any lymph node enlargement then show to your paediatrician just for reassurance. Take care.
