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 typhus (as of 2 y/o)

Typhoid fever is a gastrointestinal infection that spreads through contaminated food and water and from person to person. The disease is characterised by a prolonged fever, weakness, fatigue, loss of appetite, headache, chills, sore throat, muscle aches and cough.

For adults and children aged two years and older, a single dose provides protection. The vaccine should be administered at least two weeks before traveling to a typhoid-endemic area. If there is a continued risk of exposure to typhus, revaccination should be done every three 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).
