HIGH-RISK children in Dewsbury and Batley will continue to be offered vaccination against tuberculosis.
Health chiefs made the pledge after the Government's decision last week to scrap the school immunisation programme.
Last year there were 50 cases of TB in the North Kirklees area, which includes Dewsbury, Batley and Spen Valley.
A selective vaccination programme will replace mass immunisation against the disease that attacks the lungs, but can also affect almost any part of the body.
The BCG jab will still be offered to children from high-risk groups whose parents were born abroad.
Jane O'Donnell, infection control nurse for North Kirklees NHS Primary Care Trust, said: "Cases of TB in North Kirklees have increased in recent months and people travelling regularly between South Asian countries are at greater risk.
"Our new programme will help us to target those children who are most likely to catch the disease earlier than would have been identified through the schools programme."
