Prevention of tuberculosis vaccine from tuberculosis .. Tuberculin reaction test for early detection of tuberculosis

Does TB vaccine protect against 100% tuberculosis?
No, the currently available TB vaccine provides 50% protection, and its effectiveness does not last more than 10 years. The vaccine does not help protect the patient from the disease. Tuberculosis is not included in the national immunization program in many countries, including Lebanon, in order to monitor the development of the disease through the tuberculosis test "tuberclein reaction" for early detection of tuberculosis.
