In Sevastopol clinics, vaccinations against tick-borne encephalitis are made
Sevastopol residents can be vaccinated against tick-borne encephalitis in the city’s clinics — adult and children’s vaccines are available. Sergey Gryga, chief freelance epidemiologist of the Department of Healthcare, spoke about the features of vaccination today.
It is worth noting that preventive vaccinations against this infection are a long-term protection that can minimize the risks of infection with the tick-borne encephalitis virus. After a tick bite, a person within 10-14 days may feel symptoms similar to colds: headache, fever and aching pain throughout the body. These are signs that indicate that you need to seek medical help as soon as possible , — quotes the press service of the Government of Sevastopol Sergey Gryga.
Pre-registration is not required to get vaccinated. You need to contact the receptionist of the clinic and take a referral to the therapist. The doctor will ask about the presence of chronic, autoimmune and infectious diseases, allergic reactions in the last month, measure blood pressure, saturation, temperature and issue a referral for vaccination.
Vaccination is not done in the presence of the following contraindications — pregnancy, acute infections or exacerbation of chronic diseases, severe allergic history, bronchial asthma and autoimmune diseases.
Recall that no cases of tick-borne encephalitis have been recorded in Sevastopol since 2014. Other diseases such as borreliosis (Lyme disease) are detected up to 18 once a year.
