6. Health Risks

In Austria ticks are quite common. Wearing long trousers tucked into walking boots and using an insect repellent containing 25-50% DEET is the best prevention against tick bites.

Ticks can carry Lyme disease and Encephalitis (TBE). They are usually found at altitudes below 1200 meters, in undergrowth at the forest edge or beside walking tracks.

There is no vaccination against Lyme disease, however, against tick-borne Encephalitis (TBE), also known as FSME in Austria. Vaccination also for the delegates is therefore advised.

In the case that delegates find a tick on their skin, please advise them not to remove it themselves, but contact the Austrian team.

 

7. Global Forum
