FSME Immun

Tick vaccine (TBE)

Tick-borne encephalitis, TBE, is a serious disease transmitted to humans via ticks. There is no treatment for TBE. It is therefore important to get vaccinated against TBE if you stay in areas where TBE infection occurs.

TBE virus is found, among other things, in small rodents. They do not get sick themselves, but can transmit the virus to ticks, which, via their saliva, pass it on to the next animal or human that the tick bites. Birds and larger mammals can transport infected ticks over long distances.

Age limit

TBE vaccine is given to children from the age of 1.

Vaccination – Interval

The basic vaccination against TBE consists of three doses. Usually you get two doses 1–3 months apart. The third dose can be taken no earlier than 5 months and no later than 12 months after dose 2. The third dose should be given within the same tick season, or at least before the next tick season begins.

To maintain your protection, you need to take a fourth dose three years after the third dose and then a dose every five years. Alternative vaccination schedule may be relevant if you are older or have a weakened immune system.

Prevenar & Pneumovax


Pneumonia can affect anyone and cause serious complications. The disease primarily affects older people, the sick or people with a weakened immune system. Fortunately, there are vaccines against pneumonia.

There are two different types of pneumonia vaccines: Prevenar and Pneumovax. Pneumovax is subsidized by the county council if you belong to a risk group and is therefore free, while Prevenar has to be paid for yourself. Prevenar is considered a better vaccine that protects better.
