Travel vaccinations

Information on vaccinations applicable when travelling to and from Sweden.

Offering advice on vaccinations and other travel prophylaxis is complicated, as the advice must be individually tailored for each person. For this reason, the Public Health Agency of Sweden does not offer personalised travel vaccination advice.

Information on this website cannot substitute a private consultation with a doctor who has expertise in travel medicine. Therefore, you should contact a vaccination centre or an infection clinic in good time before the planned journey. There, you will receive an individual vaccination programme, which is based partly on the journey (the destination, the length of the journey, the type of stay) and partly on the traveller (previous vaccinations, possible underlying diseases, allergies etc.).

Vaccinations before visiting Sweden

All travellers are recommended to have basic protection, which corresponds to vaccinations against diphtheria, tetanus, polio and measles. Before travelling, it may be necessary to administer an extra booster dose against some of these diseases.

There are no regulations regarding vaccinations in order to visit Sweden.

Travellers who intend to spend time in the outdoors, especially in the Stockholm archipelago, might want to get vaccinated against tick-borne encephalitis (TBE).
