    So I've recently been offered a job and have to fill out a medical questionnaire before I start. I'm in good health but have never received a TB (BCG) vaccination because I was off school sick when it was offered.

    So as such there is a seperate form I have to fill out with even more health questions. The job is office based so this all seems a bit excessive... but is the lack of BCG a cause for concern? Is it likely to slow the process down or is it unlikely to be an issue at all if I'm in good health?

    I was homeschooled during the time that's typical for you to get the TB vaccination. My mum was determined for me not to miss out just because I don't like needles so she called our GP and asked if I could have it there. They said I didn't need it because I wasn't in a 'high risk zone' or something along those lines?? As far as I'm aware (though I'm not all that aware), they don't even make you have it in school now. So I wouldn't expect that you having not received it would be an issue at all because it's not as prominent of a problem nowadays.
