Malaria affects the inhabitants of over 100 countries worldwide, posing a risk to roughly half of the world’s population. It is transmitted through the bites of infected mosquitos.

We offer antimalaria prescriptions at no additional cost if you are coming in for any of our travel vaccines. Malaria prevention is recommended for travelers visiting parts of Asia, Africa, South America, & some European countries, due to the prevalence of the disease, the difficulty of preventing it, & its often serious nature. The disease is most common in tropical & subtropical countries, & can be fatal if malarial parasites infect the red blood cells.

Commonly affected locations

Africa, South Asia, parts of Central & South America, the Caribbean, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Oceania

Symptoms*

Malaria symptoms may develop quite quickly – within seven days of being bitten by a mosquito carrying the disease – but the disease can take up to a year to show symptoms, which are often mild & resemble a flu. Symptoms to be aware of include:
a fever of 38C or higher
chills or shivering
headaches
nausea & vomiting
diarrhoea
feeling achey all over or generally unwell
sore muscles
