Travel Health

If you are visiting a warm climate on your holidays this year, you will want to ensure that you get the most out of your experience, and keep the risk of potential illnesses to a minimum.


When holidaying in a tropical location, it’s always important to familiarise yourself and your travelling partners with the risks presented by malaria. Once infected with the disease, malaria can pose a serious threat to your health and may even prove fatal, so it is vital to take precautions: ensure you research your holiday location beforehand to check if malaria is present; get yourself and your travelling partners vaccinated; and get to know the symptoms of malaria so you can recognise them early on should they occur.

While on holiday: make sure you apply insect repellent as and where appropriate; stay in air-conditioned accommodation; and take whatever other precautions you can to avoid being bitten.

At Express Doctor, we have a number of prescription treatments available to buy online to help prevent malaria.
