BCG vaccine
Posted by: space-time

Mother in law has a very early stage of bladder cancer about 3 years ago and once in a while she has another small surgery and needs this BCG for local treatment. This is the tuberculosis vaccine which apparently is also good at fighting cancer.

She bought the last batch in Germany but they no longer have it, I asked cousins in France, also not available there. We called a few local pharmacies, they are out of stock.

Any idea where to look next?

BTW it is about $1100 per vial and she needs 3 doses this time.

Thanks

Global shortage ongoing all year.
There are a number of suppliers. It's considered one of the 'key medicines' for global development. The price is typically insane in the US. Other nations may have it for less. Serbia, Russia both make it.
