Based on this information, we will review destination specific information and tailor vaccine and other recommendations, such as malaria prevention options, to your specific itinerary and health history. We take the time to provide you with the information you need; address your questions and help you to make informed decisions about vaccines and malaria medications.

Malaria Prevention Advice

Malaria is a potentially serious and fatal illness that is transmitted by infected mosquitoes. It occurs in many tropical and sub-tropical regions of the world. Malaria is one of the most severe infectious diseases faced by travellers who go into at risk areas.

Nearly all cases can be prevented. Knowing if you are risk and taking the right precautions are essential steps to avoiding infection.

Your individual risk for exposure depends on many factors including your itinerary details, season of travel, accommodations and activities.

During a complete pre-travel consultation, we will screen your itinerary details to help determine if you will be at risk for exposure to malaria. We have current country specific maps on malaria risk to help guide the discussion.

A basic level of protection focuses on taking precautions to avoid mosquito bites. In addition, there are several prescription medications that help prevent malaria.

If you will be at risk for malaria it is important to select a medication that is right for you and your needs. We take the time to review all of your options and provide you with written information along with the written prescription for the appropriate medication to help reduce your risk of malaria infection.

Post Travel Care

Diagnosis and treatment of travel related illness, and tropical diseases, requires careful evaluation of symptoms in relation to recent and previous travel. Skilled medical management is essential and urgent if malaria and other serious diseases are suspected.

If you are concerned that you may have a travel related or tropical illness, please call us for further information and for advice on the next steps to take.

Our clinic hours are standard business hours Monday-Friday and Saturday mornings only. If you are experiencing an acute or severe illness outside of these hours, you should contact your local hospital ensuring you advise them of your recent travel.
