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 pneumococcal disease

The causative agent of pneumococcal infection is the pneumococcal microbe, which is mainly transmitted from person to person through respiratory droplets during coughing or sneezing. It can also be transmitted through contact with contaminated objects that have mucous secretions on them (toys, kitchen utensils, etc.). The most common pneumococcal diseases in children are acute middle ear and sinus infections or pneumonia, bacteraemia, meningitis, pneumonia with bacteraemia and sepsis.

Pneumococcal infection can be prevented with vaccination. In the case of vaccination, a single dose is given from the second year of life. For younger children, the number of doses depends on the age at which immunisation is started.

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).
