Vaccination against poliomyelitis

Look for appointment times

Poliomyelitis, also known as polio or infantile paralysis, is an acute viral infectious disease transmitted primarily through contaminated food, water, objects or respiratory droplets from person to person. The disease can manifest in various forms and severity levels. It is characterised by general symptoms of intoxication and often involves damage to the central nervous system, resulting in flaccid paralysis.

For primary vaccination, children are administered three consecutive doses starting from the second month of life, with a one or two-month interval between doses. From the second year of life, a fourth dose is given one year after the third dose. Revaccination for children and adolescents is recommended every five years.

For primary vaccination, adults receive two doses with a one or preferably two-month interval. A third dose is administered 8-12 months after the second dose. Subsequent revaccination for adults is recommended every ten years.

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).
