Tomoe’s first vaccination

Today, Tomoe had her very first vaccination.  What she got is the BCG vaccine (or Bacillus Calmette-Guérin vaccine).  This vaccine is for tuberculosis, and it leaves a rather distinct scar on the arm.

Here’s her arm and the 18 spots.

Tomoe did very well when she got the vaccine.  She made very little sound.  Not even a cry.  She can’t have a bath until tomorrow, though.

This was only round 1 of several rounds of vaccinations.  DPT is next!
