TB kills 1.5 million people a year; yet, vaccines are not mandated anywhere!

The latest disinformation meme is spreading stating that the TB vaccine isn't mandated anywhere even though it kills 1.5 million people a year.



Verdict: FALSE.


If this Health Authority worker would have taken the time to actually do some research instead of spreading false claims, she would have easily come upon this research study(1). It shows a Map of TB vaccination policy around the world.


The Map below shows which countries have Universal TB vaccinations and those that don't. It's clear that the US and Canada are the exceptions and not the rule.

Map displaying BCG vaccination policy by country. A: The country currently has universal BCG vaccination program. B: The country used to recommend BCG vaccination for everyone, but currently does not. C: The country never had universal BCG vaccination programs. doi:10.1371/journal.pmed.1001012.g002

There have been only 50 deaths from TB in America(2). Over 635K Americans have died from Covid-19 and are continuing to die. It appears then that many countries saw the trends in deaths associated with TB and decided to universally vaccinate. Sounds pretty smart to me.
