    Hi,
    my daughter had her BCG shot when she was 4 months old (LA-HK). My doc told me if you're living in HK long-term, then it's better to get the shot. If just here for vacation then doesn't need it. Just to be safe, you can call and ask ped if your daugher should have it or not.

    Ruby,

    BCG shots are given to newborns before being discharged from the hospital.

    Here's the schedule of immunizations given in HK.
