The travel vaccination for your children
You can also read what Statens Serum Institut writes about vaccinations for children if you are going on family trip. At RejsRejsRejs we recommend that you do not take children to areas with malaria. Some of the first signs of malaria are fever, so it can be difficult to know if your child's fever is due to malaria or is a symptom of something else. Therefore, we advise you not to take children to areas where there is a risk of them becoming infected.
You have probably heard some scary stories about medications that prevent malaria. Many of those stories are based on previous forms of medicine like Lariam. The latest forms of medicine you can often take without ruining your vacation but still taking care of yourself. Prices have also fallen significantly. Always ask a professional. You can read a lot more about malaria prevention at Statens Serum Institut's website.
