Is there malaria in Thailand?
Malaria is prevalent in Thailand. Malaria is a disease that still kills tourists every year. The advice regarding Malaria in Thailand depends on several personal and travel-related factors. You will therefore receive personal malaria advice when making an appointment with us. Malaria is transmitted through a mosquito bite. Mosquito bites can be prevented by:
- Covering clothes to wear
- Using mosquito repellents with DEET.
- Mosquitoes are mainly active at night. Therefore sleep under a mosquito net
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.
Do you experience feverish symptoms during your trip? If so, contact a doctor as soon as possible (within 24 hours). There is no malaria vaccination.
Observe precepts for optimal protection
For disease prevention, vaccinations for Thailand or taking medicines are often not enough. To best protect yourself, you should observe a number of precepts while abroad, aimed at minimising the risk of infection. During the traveller's consultation, the nurse can provide information on measures that can be taken to avoid becoming ill.

Our working method
We work on a consultation basis in which we personally advise you which vaccinations you should take for your trip to Thailand. 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 pros and cons of the various measures should be weighed against each other for each trip and for each person.
Even if you have booked a last-minute trip, it is wise to consult the Vaccination Point. This is because you can also be vaccinated just before the start of 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.
