In case of ongoing infection danger a vaccination is necessary because of infection prevention (pre-exposure prophylaxis).

For whom should it be considered as infection prevention (pre-exposure prophylaxis)?

  • Those who stay at an infected territory longer than 3 months, to small children
  • People who are in danger of getting infected during work (zoologists, speleologists, dog catchers, ethnographers, hunters, people travelling by bicycles or motorcycles etc.)
