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 rabies (upon ordering vaccine)

Rabies is an acute infectious disease of humans with acute central nervous system damage that can affect both animals and humans. The disease is caused by a rabies virus that damages the central nervous system. The source of infection is an infected animal. Symptoms of the disease may include nausea, vomiting, fatigue, fever and periodic respiratory distress known as ‘gasping’. Once symptoms appear, the disease is not treatable and always ends in the death of the infected animal or person.

Pre-exposure vaccination is recommended for individuals at high risk of contracting the rabies virus. Pre-exposure prevention of rabies in high-risk groups consists of three doses administered within 21-28 days.

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).

PLEASE NOTE! If there is even the slightest possibility of being infected with the rabies virus, immediate vaccination should be administered under medical supervision.
