As a person who has not been vaccinated against TBE, is it worthwhile to have the tick analyzed for TBE?

Since 2005, the number of TBE-infected persons in Switzerland has fluctuated between 100-250 cases per year.

The better climatic conditions for ticks and the fact that more people spend time outside have led to a significant increase in TBE infections in recent years.

The BAG (Bundesamt für Gesundheit; Federal Office of Public Health) has declared Switzerland a TBE risk area, except for the cantons of Geneva and Ticino. The BAG recommends a TBE tick analysis.
