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 SARS coronavirus

Look for appointment times

COVID-19 (Corona Virus Disease 2019) is an infectious disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, characterised by acute severe respiratory syndrome. The virus spreads through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs, sneezes or exhales. It can also be contracted by touching contaminated surfaces and then touching the mouth, eyes or nose with contaminated hands. In most cases, the disease presents with mild cold-like symptoms, but it can also cause respiratory difficulties and pneumonia. The disease is most severe in elderly individuals with underlying chronic conditions.

Vaccination recommendations for fall winter 2023 against COVID-19:

  • residents belonging to risk groups (60+ people; children and adults in the risk group) who have had more than 6 months since the last vaccination against COVID-19 or having experienced COVID-19
  • with the first course, the 60+ population and those in the risk group who have not previously been vaccinated against COVID-19 and who have not suffered from the COVID-19 disease

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).
