Can tick-borne encephalitis be prevented?
Effective vaccines against tick-borne encephalitis can be given to people living in, or travelling to, areas where the virus is commonly found. Other prevention methods include consuming only pasteurized dairy products, covering exposed skin with long-sleeved shirts and pants to avoid tick bites, checking your clothing and body for ticks, and using insect repellent.
