How can I prevent malaria when I leave the country?
If you plan to travel to a part of the world where malaria is a possibility, your doctor will give you medicine to help prevent that. It’s not a vaccine, but you'll need it for protection. Use all of your anti-malaria prescription, including the pills you take when you come back home.
