COVID VACCINE BOOSTER Nov 22 Lovely, helpful, understanding staff I rang in to book my jab, shared I am autistic so they are aware of mg additional needs. Staff understood straight away and reassured me they would inform team, also offered me space whilst waiting in busy pharmacy. British Asian lady who administered the vaccine was very nice, talked slowly and calmly and made sure i was comfortable (closing door to lower noise levels due to my sensory issues). Vaccine was the easiest one ive had, really positive experience - worth the drive from Tring Thank you!

Went in just to collect mum's prescription and there was a guy outside showing people to where their Covid jabs should be. I asked the chief pharmacist if I could get a Covid and flu jab done but I don't live in the area and the chemist's near me have run out already and have no more appointments. He knows I'm a carer for my mum in the village and need to stay healthy after my father passed away last year and took my details and I'd had both done within a matter of minutes! This was above and beyond what they had to do.... many thanks 👍

What is Malaria?

Malaria is a life-threatening disease caused by parasites that are transmitted through bites of infected female Anopheles mosquitoes. There are five parasite species that cause malaria in humans, and two of these species p.falciparum and p.vivax pose the highest threat.

Travelling to a high-risk area?

If you are planning to travel, speak to one of our 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 if you will need anti-malarial drugs.

Different Types of antimalarials

The two commonly used antimalarial drugs available are Doxycycline and Malarone (generic and branded). During your consultation, a pharmacist will explain which antimalarial drugs are suitable for you and the main pros and cons of each type.

Supply of antimalarials

If you are planning on travelling, please book a consultation well in advance or visit our pharmacy so that you can receive maximum protection from the antimalarials. Also, the pharmacist will give you advice on how to minimize your risk of mosquito bites and other appropriate precautions for your travel.
