Invitation to a virtual press conference – FSME: What can be done against the increasing number of illnesses?
Vienna (OTS) – In 2020 the TBE case numbers were higher than in more than 30 years. A significant proportion of those affected will have to struggle with the consequences for a long time to come. However, TBE (early summer meningoencephalitis) is not fate. There is a tried and tested vaccination, but it also has to be refreshed regularly. You can and should be vaccinated against TBE even during the pandemic.
At the virtual press conference on March 17, 2021 you will find out
- What one suspects behind the high TBE case numbers in 2020
- Which group is particularly hard hit by a TBE disease
- Whether or how you can get a TBE vaccination in parallel to the COVID-19 vaccination
- Why it makes sense to seek advice from the pharmacy in advance
