Nation-wide vaccination campaigns have helped to reduce or even wipe out dangerous infectious diseases in recent decades. In most cases, however, vaccine protection has to be renewed on a regular basis.

Free vaccinations for children in Vienna

All parents want their children to grow up healthy. One of the most important tasks of Municipal Department 15 - Public Health Services of the City of Vienna is to ensure that children in Vienna receive the recommended immunisation to avoid vaccine-preventable diseases. The national immunisation programme therefore offers most vaccines free of charge to children and young adults up to the age of 15 years.


Vaccination and travel medicine Service

When travelling internationally people can come into contact with serious infectious diseases. It is therefore very important that all travellers receive necessary vaccinations and detailed advice for other relevant protective health measures (e.g. malaria protection, hygiene requirements).
