• Travel Vaccines

What are the ACIP recommendations for use of tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) vaccine (Ticovac, Pfizer)?

In February 2022, ACIP voted on the following recommendation or TBE vaccination: TBE vaccine is recommended for people who are moving or traveling to a TBE-endemic area and will have extensive exposure to ticks based on their planned outdoor activities and itinerary.

In addition, TBE vaccine may be considered for persons traveling or moving to a TBE-endemic area who might engage in outdoor activities in areas ticks are likely to be found. The decision to vaccinate should be based on an assessment of their planned activities and itinerary, risk factors for a poorer medical outcome, and personal perception and tolerance of risk.
