Malaria Tablets and Vietnam Experience Tour
- 4 responses so far
Thank you for your response – I really appreciate your insight. I seem to read MORE often than not that if you stick to resort towns/big cities (which I am in this tour – minus the Mekong Delta) that the risk for Malaria is not high enough to warrant concern. It seems taking precautions such as wearing light longer sleeved clothes at dawn/dusk, wearing tropical strength inset spray etc is recommended more often.
I will read through your links and have a chat with my doctor.
Thanks again! <!--graemlin::D-->
I’ve only been to Asia a couple of times but I always take Malaria tablets as a precaution. I didn’t have any side effects with mine and I just took it every morning with breakfast, it was easy. I’d rather be safe then sorry but it’s completely up to you <!--graemlin::)--> and yes talk to your doc about it because they get all the up to date warnings etc.
