    Is it safe to have BCG vaccination within one month of regular vaccine?

    My son is 2 months old. He had his 6 weeks vaccination last month.

    Midwife suggested to have BCG today though its within 1 month of first vaccination. Is there any side effects of the BCG vaccination (in this case oral) is done within 1 month of 6 weeks vaccination.
