ASD 12 year old and school BCG immunisation programmeBCG jab ASD

I did not give him MMR as I did not think his system could cope but he took a bad reaction to his HIB jab at four years old. However, we turned things around and he has made huge progress.
Having done years and years of various interventions, diet changes, Johanson sound therapy, speech therapy, cranial massage, Fastforword, physical exercises, he is now on the milder end of the spectrum.
Yesterday I got a letter home from school informing me of the Schools BCG Immunisation programme and I am in a panic. What could happen? Could this cause any kind of regress? When he has been stressed in the recent past he has started blinking and not been able to stop. When he realises he can't stop, it gets worse, like a tic. I am afraid that if he takes a reaction to the jab something new [ or the blinking ] might start up and not stop.
Can anyone give me any advice, please. My own doctors have been totally useless in the past. All our interventions have been through our own efforts. So I can't ask my docs for advice.

Those considered high risk, can have the BCG at their GP, but none given at schools.
It might be worth finding out if your son is considered high risk for TB, and base your decission around that.

The whole point of a vaccination programme is that if the majority of the population are covered, it is less likely to take hold. But there is always the risk. But would your son stay still for an injection? I know mine wouldn't.
