    Malaria FAQs

    Malaria is a serious disease caused by a parasite that infects a certain type of mosquito. The disease is transmitted through mosquito bites of an infected mosquito. Symptoms include fever, chills, and flu-like illness. While malaria can be fatal if untreated, it can be treated by antimalaria drugs.

    Malaria is especially common in Africa, south of the Sahara Desert, and in parts of South Asia, Central America, and South America. If you are traveling to any of these regions, you may be at risk. Check with the CDC to determine if malaria is prevalent in the area you will be traveling to.

    There is currently no vaccine to provide immunization against malaria, but you can take an antimalaria medication to help prevent it. There are 5 oral antimalaria drugs available, and recommendations for which one to take differ according to the country you are traveling to and your health status. You should take the medicine before, during, and after travel to an area where malaria is present.

    No antimalaria medication can guarantee 100% protection, so you must use other precautions along with it, such as using insect repellent, wearing long sleeves and long pants, sleeping in a mosquito-free setting, or using an insecticide-treated bed net.

    If you are traveling to an area in which malaria is common, come to Statcare to get your antimalaria drugs to take with you. Our travel clinic doctor will determine which medication is best for you.
