Ticks are small creatures, but they can bother a lot. Infectious diseases have been increasing in recent years, and borreliosis or encephalitis can leave permanent consequences. In addition, a tick bite, vaccination or a previous illness can exclude it from regular blood plasma donation.
But ticks don’t stand a chance with us! We have prepared for you a competition for bracelets against ticks. You can find it on the Facebook pages of all our branches. Just answer the competition question correctly.
