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 measles, mumps and rubella (MMR)

Measles is an acute infectious disease caused by a highly contagious virus. The pathogen is transmitted through the air by droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Symptoms of the disease include fever, malaise, cough, runny nose, inflammation of the conjunctiva, sensitivity to light, rash.

The triple vaccination against measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) is recommended for

  • healthcare professionals
  • people with children under 1 year of age, pregnant people or immunocompromised people
  • people who plan to travel to areas with high disease prevalence (such as Central Africa and India).

People who were vaccinated against measles before 1993 are usually recommended to have an additional dose of one of the modern MMR vaccines, regardless of the vaccine they received previously. It is recommended to give adults who have not been vaccinated at all or who have had the disease two doses of the vaccine.

Under the national immunisation schedule, all children are vaccinated against measles. According to the schedule, the first dose is administered at the age of 1 and the second dose at the age of 13.
