The tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) is a viral infection which has over 12,000 registered cases in the high-risk for the infection areas. The disease is known to cause irreversible illness with symptoms similar to flu which later on lead to fever, headaches, inflammation of the heart, pancreas, spinal cord and finally the brain which leads to imminent death, paralysis or lifetime neurological damage.
Wild vertebrate animals are the main carriers of the infection. There are two possible ways the disease can be transmitted.
The vaccination against the deadly disease is highly effective for the people who have taken it properly, under a controlled environment like the Medical Express Clinic on Harley Street. In order to make the vaccination as effective as possible, it must be done twice, 14 days apart followed by a third dose a year later. A booster vaccination is often recommended after 3 years since the first one.
