Get yourself or your child vaccinated at one of our healthcare centres to gain full protection against TBE.
TBE is a tick-borne inflammation of the brain that is spread to humans via ticks. TBE is most common in southern and central Sweden, particularly along the Baltic coast and in other areas close to water. However, infected ticks can be found in the majority of the country.
You are recommended to get vaccinated if you spend time in risk areas in Sweden or abroad.
Everyone can get vaccinated against TBE. Children above the age of one can be vaccinated at the same intervals as adults. You do not need to be registered at any of our healthcare centres to get vaccinated.
It is extremely rare to get TBE despite being vaccinated. You will have close to 100 percent protection if you get the vaccine at the right intervals.
Once you have had the three doses you will be fully protected for three years.
You are recommended to boost the vaccine with a fourth dose after three years. It is then recommended to have a booster every five years after that.
Sweden’s infectious disease specialist recommends an extra dose for adults beginning their routine vaccinations after the age of 50. This also applies to adults with weakened immune systems due to illness.
You can get vaccinated against TBE throughout the year. It is wise to begin your vaccinations in good time before summer as full protection is achieved after three doses. Many people spend more time out in nature and in environments ticks thrive in during the summer.
