What is Tick-borne encephalitis?
Tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) is a viral infection that can cause a serious neurological illness. Although it is usually transmitted through the bite of an infected tick, unpasteurised dairy products from infected animals can also pose a risk.
How does the vaccination work?
The TBE vaccine injection contains an inactivated form of the TBE virus. 3 doses of the vaccination are recommended on day 0, 1-3 months after first dose and 5-12 months after second dose. Vaccination prepares the body's immune system to be able to fight off infection quickly. Vaccinated individuals may experience mild to no symptoms.
Who should be vaccinated?
TBE vaccine should be considered for:
All persons living in highly endemic areas
Those at occupational risk in endemic areas, e.g. farmers, forestry workers, soldiers
Travellers at risk of disease. See ‘Risk for travellers’ section above
Laboratory workers who may be exposed to TBE.
How much does it cost?
