  • Measles
  • Mumps
  • Rubella
  • Tetanus

The recommended line of vaccination gives a child an increased protection against diseases. It includes vaccines against such diseases as:

  • Rotavirus
  • Hepatitis B for groups not included in the compulsory line
  • Hepatitis A
  • Flu
  • Tick-borne encephalitis
  • Chicken pox
  • Meningococcal Infections and Human Papilloma Virus infections

Together with your child's doctor you may schedule medical consultations to assess your child's development and to agree an individual vaccination plan. Medical consultation schedules can be adjusted even to very busy parents' timetable. For your convenience, you arranged a special vaccination facility open on Saturdays. Please, make an appointment by phone in advance. Remember to bring your child's personal health record and vaccination card.
