Current vaccination


The seasonal influenza vaccine is included in the National Immunisation Programme for young children, pregnant women, members of risk groups and their household contacts and carers, people over 65 years of age, social and health care personnel, and conscripts.

Others can take the vaccine at their own expense or it may be included in one's occupational health care. Influenza viruses change rapidly so the vaccination offers protection only one influenza season at a time.

Up-to-date influenza review

True or false

Vaccinations are no longer needed
See answer

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.

See answer

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.

Vaccines should not be administered to pregnant women
See answer

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

Do vaccines contain dangerous amounts of toxins?
See answer

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
See answer

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.



The influenza epidemic has not yet begun in Finland, but some individual influenza A and B cases have been reported to the National Infectious Diseases Register.


HPV, or human papilloma virus, causes several cancers.


Hepatitis, or liver infection, is the biggest killer after tuberculosis and nine times more prevalent than HIV. Hepatitis A and B are preventable with immunisation.
