Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am worried about getting malaria on my upcoming trip to a country where it is very common. I heard there is a shot to prevent it, and I want to know more.

  1. Can you tell me about this malaria shot?
  2. How well it works, and if it has any harmful effects. Also, where can I get it?
  3. Can I just go to my regular clinic?
  4. Do I need to find a special travel clinic?

Your help means a lot for my trip plans.

Thank you.

No side effects have been reported so far. You can go to your regular clinic and take it. You can check out the country's local infectious hospital and take it. Please take the following anti-malaria and add them to the vaccine.
