FSME vaccination for children

Hi,

I live in Zurich and my daughter is 6 and she's in Kindergarten.
Her doctor told me that she can have FSME vaccination against tick-borne encephalitis and I am wondering whether it is necessary as she goes to forest about twice a month with her class.
Do most of children in ZH gets vaccinated? Or would 'through checking' be enough for less outdoorsy child?

All the information you need is in the link , including a risk map of Switzerland. Then you can make your own decision for your child.

There is an FSME vaccine for children. There are some side effects.
