You should check the validity of your vaccinations six months before your planned trip abroad.

You can get additional information about the vaccinations you need by calling the Vaccination Advice for Tourists help number +358 040 674 8822. The helpline is available on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 13.00 and 15.00. The helpline is closed during weeks 1, 8, 23–32 and 52, and exceptionally also on April 4th 2017.

The tetanus-diphtheria vaccination must be valid in all countries; the hepatitis A vaccination must be valid in most countries.

Adults can get their basic vaccinations at a nurse’s reception at their own health stations. Vaccinations for children and adolescents are given at a public health nurse’s reception at child welfare clinics, schools and student welfare.
