Over the next 7 years, more than , children were immunized, including Calmette's children. The vaccine was readily accepted in much of Europe. It was not widely used in Britain, however, and in Calmette published a paper in the British Journal of Tuberculosis arguing for its use.

    Thomas McKeown (–) was a British physician, epidemiologist and historian of medicine. Largely based on demographic data from England and Wales, McKeown argued that the population growth since the late eighteenth century was due to improving economic conditions, i.e. better nutrition, rather than to better hygiene, public health measures and improved medicine. The English summary appended to the paper is as follows: "A survey is given of 66 fatal cases of tuberculosis observed at Rotterdam during and "Juvenile tuberculosis (8 cases, of which 7 with meningitis) was mainly subprimary. Tuberculous meningitis in adults (8 cases), however, was as a rule postprimary. Only one case was observed of meningitis consecutive to exogenous re.

Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains were defined as new if the IS restriction fragment length polymorphism pattern had not been observed in any other patient during the previous 2 years. Other cases were defined as clustered and attributed to recent by:   Chest x-rays, rarely done for inductees in the First World War, were performed in over half of those drafted for the Second World War.

Normal chest x-ray. In spite of these constraints it has been estimated t men drafted for the First World War were rejected because of suspicion of tuberculosis by history or physical examination or both. Major disruptions such as natural disasters, war and infectious disease pandemics have compromised TB programs and led to an increased burden of TB.
