Merck's Tice BCG is the only product available right now. They have a patient financial assistance program if you qualify. You'll have to call them and give them your info and see if you qualify. If not, explain your situation to your urologist and see if they will work something out with you. Don't buy it from a "grey" vendor even if the price looks good and the site looks legit. There's no way to tell how they stored the drug or even what's in the vial if you don't obtain the drug from reliable sources.

You cannot just buy it. It is a live TB vaccine so it is very tightly controlled.
The only way to get it is thru your urologist.
