Immunisation

The school healthcare team is responsible for administering vaccinations in line with the national immunisation programme, including tetanus, polio, measles, mumps and rubella.

Pupils who have been diagnosed with an underlying medical condition, such as asthma, are entitled to receive the influenza vaccine through the school health service. To make an appointment for this, please contact your school nurse.

If a pupil requires a vaccination for foreign travel, please contact your own health centre. Vaccinations for hepatitis and tick-borne encephalitis that are not available through the public healthcare system can still be administered by the nurse at school. You will need to make an appointment, however.

City of Espoo staff will not be able to administer vaccinations that are not part of the Finnish national immunisation programme and that are not available to purchase in Finland.
