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.
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.
