6.  Local skin reaction following an accidental injection from a BCG vaccine in a healthcare worker 
Exposure to blood‐borne pathogens from sharp injuries continue to pose a significant risk to healthcare workers (HCW). The number of sharps injuries sustained by HCW is still unclear, primarily due to under‐reporting of events. Healthcare professionals are at risk of sustaining such injuries from hollow‐bore needles. Sharps injuries are associated with risk of infection with blood‐borne pathogens such as human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B virus (HBV) hepatitis C virus (HCV) and other live organisms. Here we are reporting a case of an adverse reaction in a HCW due to an accidental sharps injury by a needle used to administer the Bacillus Calmittee Gurien (BCG) vaccine.
