Tick Borne Encephalitis is a viral infection affecting the spinal chord and brain, transmitted via ticks found in certain parts of Europe, Russia, China, Japan and South Korea. The disease can also spread (although less commonly) through drinking unpasteurised milk from infected animals, especially goats. Risk of TBE is highest if taking part in outdoor activities such as camping, hiking or forestry in affected areas any time between spring and early autumn.
Vaccination is recommended for those who meet the criteria for risk, but it is also advisable to take reasonable precautions to avoid tick bites whilst travelling. The vaccine is available for adults and children, and is given in the form of 3 doses, at least 2 of which should be administered before travel.
