Malaria profylaxe

Malaria profylaxe
You will get a prescription from the pharmacy where you can get the tablets. The payment of malaria-tablets takes place at the pharmacy. In most cases you will have to start taking the tablets just before leaving to the tropics. Sometimes you have to start 3 weeks before departure. You should take them as told to you by the travel health specialist nurse.
Note:
You will get a personal malaria advice. Sometimes this advice is different from the standard advice, it depends on your health, your destination and the length of your journey. In Wageningen, Nijmegen and Den Bosch, a malaria consultation hour is held every week, where you will get informed in a small group of people. 
This is free of charge. Please call us to find out when the next consultation hour about malaria will take place.

Protection:
2 years after a series of 3 shots

This vaccine is for people who will stay for long time in areas where rabies occurs, and where medical help is far away or bad. There is a higher risk for dog bites for travellers who are cycling in the (sub) tropics. Children are also at risk, so are also eligible for this vaccination.
Schedule: Rabies vaccination is a schedule of three vaccinations. They are normally given on days 0, 7 and 21. An adaptation of the schedule is possible. The protection is two years. After two years, it is possible to boost the vaccination again. For people who want to expand the vaccination time, our advise is to get a fourth vaccination after one year. Then you will have five years of protection, in stead of 2 years. For people with a high risk of exposure, it is recommended to do a blood control test.
