Vaccination against influenza, tick-borne encephalitis, hepatitis A and B. We perform both scheduled and seasonal vaccinations. Vaccination before travel.
A vaccine is an effective tool for combating many infectious diseases.
The most effective protection against influenza is vaccination, which is recommended as early as October. The vaccine against influenza (flu) should be done once a year. For healthy people, the vaccine starts to work 10 to 14 days after the injection and lasts for up to a year. In the absence of contraindications, all people from the age of 6 months onwards may be vaccinated against influenza. Vaccination is contraindicated in case of hypersensitivity to egg protein or any of the other ingredients of the vaccine, as well as during acute febrile illness.
There are effective vaccines available for adults and children to prevent tick-borne encephalitis. The vaccination consists of three injections. The first two are done with an interval of 1 to 3 months, the third injection will be given up to one year later. Immunity is good after two injections, but lasts only one season, while the third injection prolongs the immunity. Children are vaccinated from the age of one year.
In work areas where there is a risk of infection with an infectious disease, the employer must ensure that workers are immunized.
From the age of 25, every adult is eligible to a diphtheria-tetanus vaccine in every 10 years. Through abrasions and cuts, tetanus-causing bacteria can reach the body even doing the simplest gardening tasks.
In our clinic, vaccination is done by a nurse who has received appropriate training.
If you would like to come for a vaccination, please book an appointment.
