Don't let malaria ruin your summer!‚Äč

The time has come to enjoy the weather and for some, this may mean travelling abroad. 

Don't forgot to take preventative steps to ensure that you are healthy whilst abroad. Even if time is short, it is never too late to seek advice regarding travel health by speaking with a community pharmacist or by visiting Travel Health Pro.

Many people assume that they have natural protection against diseases such as malaria because they have previously travelled to or lived in the country they are planning to visit. No one has full protection to malaria. Any partial protection you may have had from being brought up in a malarious country is quickly lost when you live in countries with no malaria, so everyone needs to take precautions.
