TBE risk present in 24/26 cantons of Switzerland

As the Tick-borne encephalitis risk continues to spread, vaccination is highly recommended for all residents and visitors who may be participating in any outdoor activities, with an emphasis placed on grassy areas, hedges and clearings on forest edges.
