Besides mosquito repellents, you can also protect yourself against infections caused by malaria by taking malaria pills. Vaccination Point is also the right place to get malaria pills. Make an appointment for this.

Our working method

We work on the basis of consultations in which we personally advise you which vaccinations you should take for your trip to Guatemala. Each recommendation involves your travel destination, the duration and circumstances of the trip and your personal health condition. Vaccinations and anti-malaria drugs do not always give full protection and sometimes have side effects. Therefore, the advantages and disadvantages of the various measures should be weighed against each other per trip and per person.

Even if you have booked a last-minute trip, it is wise to consult the Vaccination Point. You can still be vaccinated just before your trip. If you often book a last-minute, it is advisable to take the basic vaccinations (DTP, hepatitis A and possibly typhoid fever) as a precaution.

For tailored personal advice, make an appointment at a branch near you.
