Vaccination against Infectious Diseases
Regular, special and exceptional vaccinations against infectious diseases are provided under the obligation of an insured person to accept needed care. Vaccinations are provided free-of-charge. A natural person who is a permanent resident in the Czech Republic, a foreigner who has been granted permanent residency status in the Czech Republic, a foreigner who is entitled to permanent residence in the Czech Republic, a foreigner who has been granted temporary residence in the Czech Republic for a period longer than 90 days or who is entitled to reside in the Czech Republic for a period longer than 90 days are obliged to undergo required vaccination.
Children can only be accepted to a nursery or preschool if they have received the required regular vaccinations, have evidence of immunity against a particular disease or evidence that they cannot be vaccinated due to a permanent contraindication.
Vaccination schedules for the first year of life, childhood, adolescence and adulthood, which set out specific vaccination intervals and the administration of the individual vaccines, can be found at http://www.szu.cz/uploads/Epidemiologie/2014_CR_ockovaci_kalendar.pdf.
