Information

Information about Measles, Mumps and Rubella

Mumps, Measles and Rubella are rarely seen in the Netherlands any more. Elsewhere in the world these diseases are still common.

Information about Japanese Encephalitis

Japanese encephalitis is a viral infection that is transmitted by mosquitoes. In most cases the patient will have no symptoms or they may appear to have a kind of flu with fever, muscle aches and a headache. In severe cases an inflammation of the membranes of the brain can occur. Those at greatest risk are persons staying in the countryside for a period of time during the peak season for the disease. Discuss with the vaccination clinic whether or not a vaccination is advisable in your individual case.

Information about Tick-Borne Encephalitis

“Eastern European Tick Fever” or “Frühsommer Meningo Encephalitis” occurs in the summer months. This is a viral infection with symptoms that can vary from a flu-like condition to a serious infection of the brain. The infection only exists in forest areas. If you have been bitten by a tick you should see a doctor immediately. Vaccination against East European Tick Fever is possible but is generally only available from specialised travel clinics or larger vaccination clinics. Discuss with your vaccination clinic whether or not vaccination is advisable in your case.
