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 yellow fever

Look for appointment times

Yellow fever is a severe acute viral infection that occurs in tropical South America and Africa. Europe has thus far only seen cases of yellow fever imported from high risk areas. The natural hosts of the virus are monkeys and the transmission of the disease occurs through the bites of mosquitoes. The disease begins with high fever, headache and back pain. Muscle aches, nausea, vomiting and weakness then follow and later a rash appears, starting on the chest and spreading to the face and limbs. There is no specific treatment for yellow fever.

For vaccination, the first dose should be administered at least ten days before the need for yellow fever protection. The protection lasts for at least ten years and can be lifelong.

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).
