Frequently asked questions

Vanliga frågor och svar kopplade till Grundskydd

Grundskydd är ett paraplybegrepp som är applicerbart på samtliga vacciner.  Du får ett fullgott grundskydd när du mottagit samtliga doser av ett vaccin.

När vi talar om grundskydd i en allmän mening refererar vi till de vaccinationer som ges under grundskolegången, i det som heter det nationella barnvaccinationsprogrammet.  

I detta vaccinationsprogram erbjuds vaccin mot stelkramp, difteri, kikhosta, polio, pneumokocker, påssjuka, Influensa typ B, röda hund, mässling, hepatit b, rotavirus samt HPV till alla skolungdomar.

Majoriteten av vaccinen i barnvaccinationsprogrammet ger ett skydd livet ut. Men vaccinen för difteri, kikhosta och stelkramp kräver påfyllnadsdoser för att du ska ha kvar skydd.  

Vaccin som ingår i grundskydd är difteri, stelkramp och kikhosta. Grundskyddsvaccin ges som ett kombinationsvaccin och ger då skydd mot samtliga tre sjukdomar.  

Den angivna rekommendationen från Folkhälsomyndigheten är att fylla på grundskyddet vart 20:e år. Om du mottog samtliga vaccin i barnvaccinationsprogrammet bör du fylla på någon gång efter det att du fyllt 30 år.  

Vid resor till utlandet ökar risken för att möta på någon av de virus eller bakterier som föranleder sjukdomarna som vaccinet ger skydd mot. Om du inte har fyllt på ditt grundskydd löper du risk att bli allvarligt sjuk vid besök i utlandet eller, även här i Sverige. 

Vad är difteri?

Good hygiene and vaccination against diphtheria is the best way to protect yourself. The diphtheria vaccine is part of the Swedish general vaccination program. It spreads from individual to individual via the air or, for example, by drinking from the same water bottle an infected person drank. Unfortunately, the disease is still current in several countries worldwide and can lead to death. Diphtheria is especially dangerous for children and adults over 40 years of age.

Varför ska man ta en påfyllnadsdos av vaccin mot difteri?

Children are vaccinated against diphtheria, even though the disease is uncommon in Sweden. Since the vaccine does not protect the rest of your life, it is important to review your protection as an adult, as the infection still occurs in several countries. Has it been 15 years since you were vaccinated against diphtheria? The vaccine may need to be renewed before a trip to a country with disease risk.

In which countries is a diphtheria vaccine required?

It is generally believed that diphtheria exists in developing countries. The disease does not occur in all developing countries, but many. Review the diphtheria recommendations well in advance of departure.

Vad är kikhosta?

Whooping cough is more common among children than among adults. However, it is not unusual for adults to get sick because whooping cough is a contagious disease. The symptoms of whooping cough include a prolonged and severe cough.

Whooping cough is a drip infection and is passed on with the cough that passes through the airways. When the disease has been going on for about a week with intense coughing, sticky mucus arises, which causes difficulty in breathing. At that stage, a beeping sound can be heard when inhaling. It is called peeking and is the basis of the name of the disease. The bacterium that causes the condition attaches to various tissues in the airways and spreads.

Does the whooping cough vaccine have any side effects?

In 1996, a new vaccine was introduced, acellular (cell-free), which means that the vaccine reduces side effects. Despite this, there may be short-term and mild side effects such as redness, itching, soreness and swelling around the injection site. There may also be side effects such as nausea, malaise, headache and fever after vaccination.

Vad är stelkramp?

Tetanus is a disease that causes uncontrolled muscle spasms. It can have severe consequences, such as breathing difficulties and, in the worst case, death. Because vaccination against tetanus has been in the Swedish general vaccination program for a long time, the disease is sporadic in Sweden. However, it may return because the disease remains around the world. The bacterium that causes tetanus is found in soil and dirt and is usually infected by soil coming into contact with a wound on the body. Infection can also occur via animal bites. Therefore, it is necessary to constantly clean wounds properly and seek medical attention as soon as possible if an infection is suspected.

 

When is tetanus vaccination needed?

Vaccination against tetanus is not lifelong. Depending on how often an individual has received the vaccine, it may be good to take a booster dose after 10 to 20 years. When travelling abroad, reviewing your protection against tetanus is particularly relevant. Many countries do not have the same hygienic conditions as Sweden. Consider taking a top-up dose to reactivate or reinforce protection before travel.
