TBE vaccination

The National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) recommends that people who spend a lot of time outdoors in nature for more than four weeks in certain areas of Helsinki (Etelä-Laajasalo, Jollas/Villinki, Kivinokka) get a TBE vaccination. THL does not recommend this vaccination in other parts of Helsinki.

The vaccine provides protection against tick-borne encephalitis, an infection spread by tick bites.

The clients must pay for the vaccine themselves. In order to get a vaccination, you will need a prescription and a dose of the vaccine, which you can get from a pharmacy.

Contact your health station to get the required prescription and discuss the vaccination. You must book an appointment with a nurse for the vaccination.
