The high proliferation of mosquitoes in Argentina is a fact that there is a high risk of malaria. Malaria parasite spreads through a mosquito bite, and when you are infected, symptoms such as high fever, severe joint and muscle pains results. You can suffer these symptoms for days, and it can be fatal if not treated.
The risk contracting malaria is very low in the Salta province near the border of Bolivia as well as Chaco, Corrientes and Misiones near the Brazil and Paraguay borders.
There is no vaccination for malaria. You should arrange some malaria medications while travelling to areas where there is a risk of malaria to prevent the illness from developing. Seek your doctor’s advice before getting any malaria medication because the type of medication you need will depend on your destination, itinerary, length of stay and current medical condition.
Malaria risks can be reduced by eliminating mosquitoes through the use of insect repellent such as DEET 50%; you can also wear long sleeves and trousers or sleep under a mosquito net.
There is a high risk of Yellow Fever in Argentina. Yellow Fever is caused by mosquitoes, which are very high in tropical countries such as Argentina. Regions such as the Corrientes, Misiones regions, Formosa Province, Chaco, Jujuy and Salta and the Iguaçu Falls have a very high risk of Yellow Fever. Other areas in the country are free from Yello fever apart from the areas mentioned above.
It is highly recommended that travellers are vaccinated for Yellow Fever before travelling. As a result of this, all travellers visiting where there is a risk of Yellow Fever should get advice concerning vaccination before travelling. You can visit The Travel Clinic London to get information or call 02037457527 to get vaccinated.
