Yekaterinburg to vaccinate against tick-borne diseases
The vaccines come out of the Sverdlovsk region city budget and will be free for children in preschool and first grade, Ekburg.ru reports.
All others are encouraged to get the vaccine at their own expense.
The Sverdlovsk region is home to many ticks, which can carry encephalitis-an acute infectious viral disease that affects the nervous system and can lead to disability or death, according to Ekburg.ru.
Information on prevention, including reading materials, audio and video products can be found at the Yekaterinburg city center of medical prevention.
Ticks are currently in hibernation, marking the season for vaccination, Ekburg.ru reports.
Adults with encephalitis will experience acute onset of fever, headache, confusion and sometimes seizures. Young children may show signs of irritability, poor appetite and fever.
