Tick-borne encephalitis

Tick-borne encephalitis is a severe viral infection that affects the brain and its membranes. The severe course of the disease can lead to paralysis, mental disorders and even death.

According to statistics, more than 500,000 people visit tick hospitals in Russia every year, up to 6% of them get tick-borne encephalitis. Moreover, most bites do not occur in a dense forest in the taiga, but in a city or in a country house - in a park or among your favorite apple trees.

Despite the frightening statistics, it is not necessary to sit at home in spring and summer in order to protect yourself and your family from tick-borne encephalitis. To enjoy country trips and walks in the fresh air, it is enough to take care of your health and the health of your loved ones in advance, having passed timely vaccination.

In our clinic, the annual vaccination season for tick-borne encephalitis begins. Vaccinations against encephalitis traditionally begin before the onset of the tick activity season, since the body needs time to form immunity. The classic vaccination program consists of three vaccinations, two of which are given with an interval of one month, and the third vaccination expects the patient only after a year. It is enough to carry out such vaccination every 3 years. Accelerated vaccination regimens are also provided.
