Health officials urge citizens to vaccinate against tick-borne disease
"Most importantly, those who have not been vaccinated against tick-borne encephalitis, it must be done," Kharitonov said, adding that those vaccinated over three years ago should be re-vaccinated, according to Ekburg.ru. "We must remember that we live in the territory of endemic tick-borne encephalitis."
Kharitonov said those bitten by a tick and displaying symptoms of encephalitis should visit the emergency room immediately to receive immunoglobulin treatments, which must be repeated each month.
Yekaterinburg offers free tick-borne encephalitis vaccinations to pensioners and children aged 15 months and older. For adults, a complete medical exam is required prior to vaccination, and vaccinations are not administered until three weeks after recovering from an acute disease, Ekburg.ru reports.
