What is Tick-Borne Encephalitis (TBE)?
-As we approach the spring, summer, and fall seasons here in Bavaria and spending more time outdoors, the risk for contracting tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) increases.

Symptoms can range from; mild: fever, fatigue, muscle pain, severe: paralysis, convulsions, confusion, to death (<2%); long-term complications (10%).
 
Where is TBE Contracted?
-Tick season in Bavaria is mostly from April-November.
-Anyone participating in outdoor activities could be at risk.
-Grass & wooded areas (parks, forests, gardens) are considered higher-risk
