Malaria is a life-threatening disease caused by parasites that are transmitted through bites of infected mosquitoes. At King’s Pharmacy, we are passionate about keeping the people of Birmingham safe. One way of doing so is providing you with the antimalarials you will need!
If you are planning to travel to areas in which malaria is a high risk, speak to one of our expert pharmacists to establish if you require antimalarial drugs. The pharmacist will check the risk of malaria and also the type of activities you will be carrying out to decide whether or not specific antimalarials apply to you.
What Antimalarials are available in Birmingham?
