Vaccinations are among the most important advances in medicine. They provide us with reliable protection against a wide range of diseases, mainly caused by viruses and bacteria.
There are no longer any compulsory vaccinations in Austria, but the most important vaccinations are recommended by the highest health authorities.
As a general rule, vaccinations are always recommended regardless of age. Even the vaccination of babies, toddlers and children is strongly recommended. However, adults are also recommended to refresh the vaccination protection they acquired in childhood.
