Current vaccination

Corona virus COVID-19

The free of charge corona virus vaccine is offered to everyone over 12 years of age and based on individual consideration for children aged 6 months to 11 years. The vaccine offers protection particularly against the severe form of the disease. It also prevents the transmission of the virus, even though it doesn’t completely stop contagions. Because of this, in addition to getting the vaccine it’s important to continue adhering to the precautions that prevent the spreading of the virus, e.g. washing your hands. 

The COVID-19 disease is caused by the SARS-CoV-2-virus. It causes respiratory infections that range from almost asymptomatic disease to severe forms that require hospitalization and even intensive care. Advanced age is the most significant risk factor for a severe disease. Additionally certain illnesses, like severe chronic kidney or pulmonary disease increase the risk of severe COVID-19 disease.

Current corona virus monitoring information  


True or false

Vaccinations are no longer needed?

Smallpox is the only disease that has been globally eradicated. Other diseases, such as measles, are a good example of the importance of maintaining vaccination coverage.

Vaccinations cause autism?

The study that linked the MMR vaccine with autism has been proved false. Vaccine safety is carefully monitored and the benefits of vaccination outweigh the risks.

Do vaccines contain dangerous amounts of toxins?

The quantities are much lower than what we take in from food and beverages and our living environment, in general.

Vaccinations are not necessary for nearby travel?

The most important vaccines for travellers are the same basic immunisations that are recommended to be kept up to date even in Finland. Even those travelling to nearby regions should get the Hepatitis A vaccine and the influenza vaccine. Tick-borne encephalitis is found in regions including the Swedish archipelago.

Vaccines should not be administered to pregnant women?

Many vaccines benefit the health of the mother as well as the child.
