Tick Born Encephalitis 

Spread by the bite of an infected tick and rarely, via unpasteurised milk from infected cows, sheep and goats. Travelers at risk include those planning to walk, camp or work in long grassy or wooded areas for long periods especially during spring, summer and autumn months as this is when the ticks are most active. If caught, symptoms include flu-like illness sometimes followed by neurological complications. If at risk, travelers should consider vaccination. They should also avoid tick bites by covering up and treating clothing with Permethrin (clothing treatment) which is a tick killer. Always remove ticks promptly
