Concerned mom
My son is 4 months old. We will be visiting our inlaws in the Northern Transvaal on Friday. We have been told that because it is so hot, there are a lot of Mosquitos. Do I need to get medication for the baby before we leave, or an injection. Please advise.

I am sorry to answer this too late. If it is a malaria invested area the advice would be to protect against malaria. otherwise normal measures to prevent mosquito bites would be sufficient.
