Beware of the ticks!

If you are planning on spending some time in the countryside you always face the risk of being bitten by ticks which can in worst case cause the so called Tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) virus infection.

A vaccination can protect you from this danger. You can get it either from your doctor or you keep your eyes open for the Punkkibussi (tick bus) driving around the capital area the whole summer through. Without an appointment you can just come there and get the vaccination within a few minutes. It costs 45 € for children and 50 € for adults.
