Vaccinations are very important and efficient. They protect you and prevent the spread of contagious diseases.

Measles Vaccination

People born after 1970 with only one dose of MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella) vaccine or without Childhood vaccination should get one dose of MMR vaccine.

Tick-Borne-Encephalitis Vaccination

Adults and children living in risk areas such as Darmstadt, Darmstadt-Dieburg district, Bergstrasse, Gross-Gerau should get 3 injections of the vaccine. The second injection is given after 1-3 months followed by the third one after 9-12 months. A booster is required after 3 or 5 years depending on your age.

Flu Vaccination

You should have the flu vaccination if you:

  • Are 60 years or over
  • Are pregnant in the second trimester
  • Have certain medical conditions regardless of age
  • Are living in a long-stay residential care home or nursing home
  • You are the carer for an elderly or disabled person
  • Work in the health care sector or public services

The flu vaccine is recommended once a year in the autumn using the one recommended by the WHO.

Tetanus Vaccination

If you had less than three injections, please consult us. It is necessary to complete the primary immunisation. Thereafter, a booster is required every 10 years.
