Frequently Asked Questions

How long does protection from malaria medication last?

Protection from malaria will last for the duration of your course of anti-malarial tablets. You will need to begin your course of medication before travel and continue to take the tablets for a few days after your return. We offer 12 anti-malarial tablets in one course. For longer trips, you will need to purchase additional tablets to ensure you are protected against malaria.

You will also need to start a new course of medication for future trips. One course of anti-malarial tablets does not offer permanent protection.

What are the Symptoms of Malaria

Symptoms of malaria include fever, headache, chills, and muscle aches. Severe cases can lead to organ failure and other life-threatening damage, so it is important to be aware of any risks and acquire malaria tablets ahead of travel.

Do I need to take anti-malarial medication before travel?

It is important to maintain proper preventative measures and receive a course of anti-malarial tablets before travel. You should begin your course of medication before your trip to ensure full protection.

Can I be immune to malaria if I've had it before?

Partial immunity may develop after repeated exposure, but it doesn’t guarantee complete protection. Malaria can still be severe upon subsequent infections. It is recommended that you start a new course of malaria prevention tablets before every trip to a high-risk country or area.
