Tick-borne encephalitis can lead to long-term cognitive damage in the paediatric population


TBE in Children

  • TBE can affect children of any age.
  • Despite less dramatic symptoms in children, a substantial proportion of children are left with long-term cognitive impairment after TBE infection.
Children can benefit from protection against the potentially serious long-term consequences of TBE
