Does my child need to take the BCG vaccine in India?

Q: I have a 4 months old son born in USA. We came back to India after completing the 4 months vaccination schedule there. Should he be given any other vaccination apart from what he has already taken? I know that BCG is not given in USA so should he be given the BCG vaccine here in India? Please help me with your suggestions.

A:Yes, he should receive BCG vaccination. The need for the rest of vaccinations can only be decided after we know the vaccines that the child has received.
