Re: Tick Vaccination

I guess you mean a vaccination against Tick-Born Encephalitis. But no, it's not normally considered necessary. Some areas have a higher risk than others, http://www.ch.ch/en/ticks/ should answer any more detailed questions.
That link - for me,using brave browser, with shields up or down - now goes to a page containing nothing useful in English, but there is a link to a page, in German, on admin.ch.

I found an archive copy of the above here.

This Swissinfo page has an article dated January 2019, which states

This February 2019 Swissinfo article states

Following a recent government call for mass vaccinations against the debilitating tick-borne encephalitis disease, the health office said on Monday it considered the entire country – except cantons Geneva and Ticino – to be at risk.
