Exactly the travel vaccinations you need - no more, no less.

During your consultation, our nurse or pharmacist will talk you through the health risks at your travel destinations to check which vaccines you need. If a vaccine is not essential, we will explain your options so you can decide whether you would like to have it.


Malaria

Malaria is a serious and sometimes fatal disease transmitted by mosquitoes. You cannot be vaccinated against malaria.

Malaria Precautions

The malaria risk in India is moderate and most parts of the country are affected. This includes major cities, such as Bombay and Delhi. The only areas where there is no risk of malaria are those above 2,000m (6,562 ft), for example Himachal Pradesh, Jammu, Kashmir and Sikkim. The malaria risk in India also shows seasonal fluctuations and tends to be higher during the wet seasons.

You can take either Doxycycline, Lariam or Malarone tablets to protect yourself from malaria. In addition, you need to take measures to avoid mosquito bites.
