Vaccination policy

The current immunisation policy in Finland expects no mandatory vaccine. The current vaccine schedule is:

  • Rotavirus (infants, 2 months)
  • Pneumococcus, Rotavirus, DTaP-IPV-Hib (infants, 3 and 5 months)
  • Pneumococcus, Rotavirus, DTaP-IPV-Hib, MMR (infants, 12 months)
  • MMR (infants, 18 months)
  • booster doses for children at 4 and 6 years
  • HPV (children, 11-12 years)

Parents receive a lot of pressure to accomplish such schedule. At child care centers they are sometimes called irresponsible when they choose not to vaccinate, the common reasons being herd immunity and the risk of contracting a disease. In other cases parents experience respect for their choice.

School

Unvaccinated children in Finland are allowed at any pre-school and school grade.

Adverse event following immunisation public reporting system

Vaccine adverse events can be reported at the Terveyden ja hyvinvoinnin laitos.

Who we are

The EFVV (European Forum for Vaccine Vigilance) is an alliance of member-organisations and individual members from 25 European countries.  Our member-organisations consist of consumer groups and pro-choice groups whose members in turn include medical professionals and scientists. Their combined memberships exceed 100,000. We call on all Europeans to stand together in a demand for a united vaccination policy based on freedom of choice and informed consent.  We believe that mandatory vaccination is not only a serious risk but a violation of human rights and dignity.  We therefore demand transparency and caution as well as recognition and concern for the many vaccine-injured in Europe and beyond.
