Hi,

Do you know if there are any hospitals in Kista / Stockholm area that provides vaccination to children? Is the vaccination done in government hospitals or private hospitals? Is it controlled by government? Is there any fee for different vaccinations?

I would appreciate, if you could share detailed information or share web links explaining these details.

Best Regards,
Raju

Hi,
Didn't the mid-wife assigned to the mother tell you this? What about barnvårdscentral where you take your baby? As far as I know, you should have gotten all this info from them.

Our mid-wife told us that we ask barnvårdscentral when we have had our baby (still waiting).

Yes, contact the nearest Barnvårdscentralen (BVC). If you're asking about the normal vaccination schedule for small children, they should do it all for free - it is their job. Indeed it is in everyones interests that they do so.

If you mean, where can I get a non-reimbursable vaccination (eg for travel) then there are loads of places, Svea Vaccin is a chain that does them.

You can choose if you want to go to a private hospital or clinic, or one run by the goverment. Vaccinations for children are free. Go to a barnavårdscentral, bvc, where they are specialized in taking care of kids, and they will tell you everything you need to know about this.

Children in Sweden get vaccinations for 10 serious diseases, diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, haemophilus influenzae, measels, mumps, rubella, polio, pneumococcal infection and cervical cancer (if the child is a girl). Those are the one that's recommended for all, but there are other ones as well, that depends on the child, or instance if the child is in risk of getting hepatitis b or tuberculosis, or if you travel to areas where there are other dangerous illnesses you will get vaccinations for those as well for the child.

Here is a list (in Swedish) in what ages the child gets which vaccination:

Here is a list of bvc, there is also a map so you can find one close to your home:

There seem to be two in Kista, both of them located in the mall, the second one is private:

Hope you will find a good clinic, and that your child will get what he or she needs to stay healthy!

If you go to a private hospital then it is worth asking for the Apathy vaccine too.
