Proper Use

Drug information provided by: IBM Micromedex

A nurse or other trained health professional will give you this vaccine. It is given as a shot into one of your muscles.

This vaccine is usually given in 3 doses. After the first dose, 2 more doses are given within 1 to 12 months. It is very important that you receive all 3 doses of the vaccine at least 1 week before possible exposure.

You might need a booster dose (fourth dose) in the future if you will be exposed to tick-borne encephalitis again. A booster dose may be given at least 3 years after you completed the first 3 doses.
