Analyses, examinations, procedures

Humans are exposed to thousands of pathogens every day. The immune system is continuously working to protect us against them, and its activity goes unnoticed. Vaccination helps the body’s immune system recognise and combat threats.

Vaccination results in the development of immunity similar to that of an infectious disease. This means that the human body is able to eradicate harmful micro-organisms before they multiply en mass when later exposed to the disease. This is how vaccination prevents the spread of infections.

The need for vaccination depends on a number of factors:

  • which infectious diseases the person has already had
  • which vaccinations they have already had
  • what their work-related risks are
  • whether there are dangerous disease outbreaks in Estonia
  • where they plan to travel in the near future

For any questions about vaccinations, please contact your Confido family doctor or general practitioner, who will arrange new vaccinations for you, if needed.

Vaccination against hepatitis A

Look for appointment times

Hepatitis A is liver inflammation caused by the highly contagious hepatitis A virus. Infection occurs through consumption of food, water, objects and hands contaminated with the virus or through close contact with an infected person. The most common symptoms include fever, abdominal discomfort, muscle aches, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting and yellowing of the skin, mucous membranes and whites of the eyes.

The vaccination schedule consists of two doses. The second dose can be administered anytime between six months to five years, preferably between six to twelve months after the first dose, in order to achieve long-term protection.

All vaccinations done at Confido are recorded in your vaccination passport, which we ask you to take with you when you come to get vaccinated.

If necessary, we will issue a new vaccination passport for an additional fee (€10).
