What has to be known on the vaccinations?
It is suggested that the vaccination process should start or finish (the first 2 doses in any case) before spring time (before the period of the ticks starts) i.e. in winter, when there is no risk of infection.
Two types of vaccines are available in Hungary.
In one type the vaccine is available separately for children between the age of 1-12 and people above the age of 12.
Primary vaccination series consists of 3 doses. Dose 2 has to be given 1-3- months after dose 1, and dose 3 9-12 months after dose 2.
In case of shorter time available for the vaccination to take effect, dose 2 can be given at the 7th day after dose 1, and dose 3 at the 21st day after dose 1.
The vaccination takes effect in 14 days after dose 2 the soonest.
