National Institute of Health and Welfare defines risk areas each year. Outside the risk areas you can take the vaccine at your own expense or it may be included in your occupational health care. The vaccine is recommended for people who spend plenty of time in nature in the risk areas. Tick-borne encephalitis fever occurs locally in continental Finland.

The other subtype of the A virus, A(H3N2), has also been observed.
