  • Tick-borne Encephalitis Vaccine

    Why have the Tick-borne Encephalitis Vaccine?

    The Tick-Borne Encephalitis vaccine is available from Kamsons Pharmacy, simply complete the form at the bottom of this page to get started. Tick-Borne Encephalitis is found across most of Europe, Russia and parts of China and Japan. You’re more at risk of being bitten if you do activities such as hiking and camping as ticks live in grassy areas and forests.

    Whilst TBE is rarely fatal in Europe, the sub-type found in Asia can have a higher fatality rate and long-term neurological complications are more common.

    Our vaccination service and how it works

    Many Kamsons pharmacies offer travel vaccinations that can be administered in the pharmacy. To register your interest for this service, simply complete the below questionnaire. The form will then be reviewed by one of our independent prescribers. Once the pharmacy has received the prescription, a member of the pharmacy team will contact you to arrange an appointment for administration of your vaccine.

    The Tick-Borne Encephalitis vaccine is available from Kamsons Pharmacy for £65 per dose. You will need three doses for full protection. The second dose should be given between 1-3 months after the first and the third dose after 5-12 months.

    From completing the initial form to having your travel vaccines ready to administer we aim to complete the process in 2 working days.

    If you are travelling you may also be interested in our Antimalarial, Period Delay and Travel Vaccine services.

    More information on the vaccinations required for travellers can be found on the Travel Health Pro website.
