Tick Borne Encephalitis (Course of 2 or 3 Vaccines)


30 min booking


Tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) is a viral infection transmitted by the bite of infected ticks. Less commonly, cases of TBE occur following ingestion of unpasteurised milk products.

Travellers are at increased risk of exposure during outdoor activities in areas of vegetation (gardens, parks, meadows, forest fringes and glades). Ticks are usually most active between early spring and late autumn.

Vaccination is recommended for those visiting affected areas whose activities put them at increased risk including:

  • Those who will be going to live in TBE risk areas

  • Those working in forestry, woodcutting, farming and the military

  • Travellers to forested areas, e.g. campers, hikers, hunters and individuals who undertake fieldwork

  • Laboratory workers who may be exposed to TBE
