Malaria is a potentially fatal disease that is transmitted by mosquitoes. Thankfully there is a lot you can do to reduce the risk of contracting malaria. Determining if you are at risk of malaria is a part of any consultation carried out at The Travel Clinic (Glasgow) with information being provided on how you can minimise mosquito bites and what medication is appropriate for you and your trip.
There are many different tablets available for preventing malaria and it is crucial that you take one that is effective for the area you are going to. Up to date advice should always be sought as it is possible that tablets that you might have previously taken are not advised for the area you are currently planning to visit. If you have forgotten to obtain malaria tablets, perhaps did not realise that you needed to take them or are leaving on a short notice trip, the important thing is to get advice as there are anti-malarial tablets that can be started a day or two before you leave.
The price of our our anti-malarial tablets can be found on the price list page.
