Vaccinations

Vaccinations

No special vaccinations are required for travelling in Austria. However, immunisation against tick-borne encephalitis (TBE - German: FSME) is recommended, especially if you spend the spring semester in Vienna. You can either get vaccinated in advance by your own doctor, or alternatively during the first few days after your arrival. From March onwards, the vaccine is available in all pharmacies; it is best to buy it there and then go to a general practitioner or contact the local “Health Offices” of Magistratsabteilung 15 (MA 15) to arrange an appointment for the vaccination.
