Malaria Prevention

Malaria, a serious disease caused by parasites transmitted by infected female Anopheles mosquitoes, can be fatal. P. falciparum and P. vivax are the most concerning species. Traveling to a malaria-prone area requires a consultation with our pharmacists. 

They’ll assess your risk and decide if antimalarial drugs like Doxycycline and Malarone are necessary. Both generic and branded options are available, and the pharmacist will explain the advantages and disadvantages of each. 

For full protection, schedule a pharmacy consultation well in advance of your trip. You’ll receive antimalarials and advice on minimizing mosquito bites and other safety precautions for your journey.
