TB treatment for Kid

Mom is diagnosed with tuberculosis recently . Now she is staying in a different appartment with a care taker . Her kid is 2 years old now . The kid was in close proximity with mom till we diagnosed . All the vaccinations are previously given to the kid. Do I have to start the treatment for kid as well ?

Kid will need prophylaxis treatment even if no symptoms. Single drug. If symptoms present needs diagnosis. Meet pediatrician.
