Do you need vaccinations?

Malaria Prophylaxis and Travelling

Anti-malarial drugs cannot be prescribed on the NHS for the prophylaxis of malaria.  Tyntesfield Medical Group historically offered a private prescription which allowed pharmacies to issue antimalarial medication.  However as a private prescription is a  chargeable item, we have decided to stop issuing prescriptions for patients above 2 years as it is cheaper for the patient to visit the pharmacy or travel clinic directly.  


Malaria prophylaxis be purchased from some Pharmacies who offer the private service e.g Day Lewis , High Street, Nailsea (usually Mondays, Tuesdays or Fridays) for patients over 2 years of age and weighing over 11 kg  or via a private Travel Clinic, please see links to clinics and pharmacies below.

Advice and information on which malaria prevention medicines are necessary or recommended depends on the area you will be visiting.  Further information is available from: 

➢ Travel Health Pro: 

➢ Fit for Travel:


Some medicines need to be started a few days before travel, whilst others may need to be started a week or more before travel. You will need to purchase or obtain sufficient prophylactic medicines to cover the period of travel, considering that malaria prevention medicines are started prior to travel, taken while away and continued on return from travel.


Please see the following websites for information on prevention methods that should be undertaken to reduce the risk of Malaria.  e.g mosquito bed nets, suitable clothing and insect repellents such as DEET.
