Most Peds office have an on call dr. Try calling the office and it should give you a number for the on call or tell you how to get a hold of someone.

I don't think there is a vaccination for TB, anyway. There is a skin test they can do to check for exposure, and if that is positive, he'd have to have a chest x-ray to see if he is infected. GL!

After more research I found out no vax for it-my dr is just always saying that he's gonna get something horrible because I chose not to vax so this is what first popped into my head I called them and they are thinking more like an infection-maybe broncitis (sp?) or even pnemonia so I'm going right in

This is how it is for me too. My son drips sweat all night long and when he nurses I have his sweat dripping down my arms. It is just how he is. I hope that your some gets better soon though mama.
