International travel, reasearch stays abroad and studies #
You should check well in advance if you must be vaccinated to travel to or through specific countries. You can find a list of countries and associated vaccination requirements on this vaccine map (in Norwegian), or at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health.
Some countries and institutions require you to document that you have taken certain vaccines. If traveling with accompanying family/children, one must be extra careful as schools or kindergartens may require documentation or require vaccinations prior to enrolment. You can print your vaccination card in Norwegian and English at helsenorge.no (in Norwegian).
You can be vaccinated at the following locations:
- Trondheim Vaccination and Infectious Disease Control Office. Erling Skakkes gate 40, 1st floor, Leutenhaven Entrance A and C. The office will also provide you medical advice for your travels.
- Your GP.
Work with risk of infection #
There may be specific vaccination requirements that are associated with your job responsibilities, particularly if your work exposes you to:
- Human tissue that might risk your infection with Hepatitis B: you will need a vaccine for Hepatitis B
- Live animals and/or soil: you will need a vaccine for tetanus.
- Wastewater and/or sewage: you will need a vaccine for diptheria, tetanus, polio and Hepatitis A (Hepatitis B).
A risk assessment of the workplace is necessary to decide who should be vaccinated. Contact the Occupational Health Service to get an appointment for vaccination and a targeted health check. You will need to fill out a vaccination form and bring it with you when you are vaccinated. You should also bring your vaccination card if you have one, or print a list of your vaccinations from Mine vaksiner on the Institute of Public Health web page (In Norwegian).
