vaccine against Malary

Our office works on the highest level of quality, we're not just applying travel related vaccinations but preventive vaccines too.

Malaria is the most spread infectious disease in the world, causing the death of more than 1 million people in the world annually. It’s dangerous for people travelling to the infected territories such as Africa (mostly in the territories to the South from the Sahara), several countries of Asia, the Indian subcontinent and some parts of Central and South America.

Pathogen

Plasmodium Malariae (Plasmodium falciparum, -vivax, -ovale, -malariae)

Way of spread

Spread by anopheles mosquitoes.

The Anopheles mosquitoes get infected while taking blood of the infected humans, and become able to infect in 10-30 days after the pathogens have finished reproduction. When taking blood again, the pathogen is transmitted into human blood circulation with the saliva of the mosquito. The infection can be spread by blood transfusion and through the placenta as well.
