When travelling to tropical and subtropical countries, it is important to take the correct precautions against malaria, which is a serious and sometimes fatal disease. There is currently no vaccination against malaria, but there are a number of ways that you can prevent and protect yourself against the disease. Malaria is caused by parasites that are transmitted through the bites infected by mosquitoes. Mosquito bites are more common during the evening, but it is important to protect yourself at any time in the day, especially in high-risk areas. 

Peak Pharmacy Online provides a range of anti-malaria tablets that helps to protect against the disease. The type of tablet you will need to take depends on the area you are visiting, the length of stay, your medical history and any drugs you may already be taking. Malaria tablets are available via a prescription, or by taking our online consultation service. To find out the risks and what medication you will need, see our Malaria Risk Information map, or for more information and advice on how to avoid malaria, visit our Malaria Information page.
