Vaccinations when you are moving to Finland

When you move to Finland, find out which of the vaccinations included in the Finnish vaccination programme you have not received. If you have not received all the vaccinations in the vaccination programme, you can get them free of charge if you move to live permanently in Finland.

If you have applied for asylum or temporary protection in Finland and are a minor or pregnant, you can receive the vaccinations free of charge.

Where can I receive vaccinations?

You can receive vaccinations at your own health centre. If you are a student, contact student health care. Children receive vaccinations at the maternity and child health clinic or school.
