Newborn Vaccination for Tuberculosis (BCG)

My daughter is 2.5 months old and we are living in Zurich. Her vaccination is ongoing as per Swiss schedule but it doesn't include one for Tuberculosis (BCG).

Our doctor also mentioned that it's not available here in Switzerland since it's low risk here. I am also aware of the fact that it doesn't protect completely against TB and leaves a scar permanently.

But I would prefer to get her vaccinated before we travel to India.

Can anyone please suggest any doctor/hospital in Zurich where this vaccinations is offered?

Thanks in advance..
