Ticks have become active in Transbaikalia
The season of tick activity has begun in the Trans-Baikal Territory. Two people asked for medical help for tick bites, reports the EastRussia agency.
According to the department of Rospotrebnadzor, the first message about tick sucking came from the Karymsky district, the second case was recorded in Chita. In both cases, the ticks were not encephalitic.
Rospotrebnadzor specialists remind that in case of a tick sucking, it is necessary to immediately contact the emergency room and hand over the arthropod for analysis. Time in such a situation is a critical factor, because immunoglobulin prophylaxis of tick-borne viral encephalitis disease is recommended no later than 4 days after tick sucking.
You can also protect yourself from encephalitis by vaccination. In January-March 2021, 8547 people have already been vaccinated in Transbaikalia. Tick-borne encephalitis vaccinations can be carried out throughout the year, but vaccination should be completed two weeks before the intended exit to nature.
