Malaria advice

Malaria is a deadly parasitic disease transmitted by the bite of mosquitoes – it is therefore essential to seek advice and take the most appropriate precautions to prevent catching this potentially fatal disease. When taken properly anti-malarial drugs are 90-100% effective but must always be combined with other bite avoidance measures. The most effective anti-malarial drug varies from destination to destination so it is essential to obtain the most up to date information before you travel. Here at Monkbar Pharmacy we can provide the anti-malaria drug and advice you need for a safe trip, without the need for a doctor’s prescription.

Vaccine requirements

Nobody likes injections, but they afford protection against diseases that can make you extremely ill or at worse even kill. Despite known risks, almost one in four UK holidaymakers don’t get any vaccinations, despite travelling to areas that have life-threatening infectious disease. Vaccinations protect you against many travel-related infections such as polio, typhoid, hepatitis A and B, rabies, cholera and Japanese encephalitis. Vaccine requirements vary depending upon destination and the nature of your travel, so if you have booked a trip and want to know how to best protect your health drop into our pharmacy and speak with one of our highly trained pharmacists for a personal travel vaccine schedule.
