Thanks for posting this interesting question,this is not really what you are asking however I remember reading that HIV Infected Children should not to be given the BCG Vaccine.
Revised BCG vaccination guidelines for infants at risk for HIV infection
Following a review of relevant data, the Global Advisory Committee on Vaccine Safety (GACVS) has revised its previous recommendations concerning bacille Calmette1 Guerin (BCG) vaccination of children infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
WHO had previously recommended that in countries with a high burden of tuberculosis (TB), a single dose of BCG vaccine should be given to all healthy infants as soon as possible after birth, unless the child presented with symptomatic HIV infection.
However, recent evidence shows that children who were HIV-infected when vaccinated with BCG at birth, and who later developed AIDS, were at increased risk of developing disseminated BCG disease. Among these children, the benefits of potentially preventing severe TB are outweighed by the risks associated with the use of BCG vaccine.
GACVS therefore advised WHO to change its recommendation such that children who are known to be HIV-infected, even if asymptomatic, should no longer be immunized with BCG vaccine.
Yes, TB seems to have been very common in my Father's family in the first half of the 20th C. Not in my Mothers though. It's given as the cause of death on some members of the extended family. Including 2 children.
I have a positive TB skin test but never developed symptomatic TB. I was treated with Rifampin for 6 months to "treat" the test. I think its relatively more common to have been exposed to TB nowadays, especially if you live in big urban areas and come in contact with a lot of people. After the original big push to eradicate TB agencies became complacent and it has come back in the developing world and thus among the immigrant population in the western world as well as in HIV patients. Personally, I know 2 non immigrant, non HIV positive people who were treated for TB recently. They are fine now but had to take antibiotics for a year or longer.
I only just thought of it-- that maybe there was a link with us. My cousin had one lung removed because of tubuculosis he recovered and is now elderly and has protate cancer. Another cousin amd my siter also had it. I thought that there might be others. That is interesting about the vaccine and HIV babies There is sooo much that is unknown
