Q.

TRAVEL ADVICE

Hi there,

We are travelling to Mozambique in two weeks time, I would just like to know what extra precautions I should take with my 20 moth old baby (regarding deseases, malaria, any extra innoculations etc)

Thanks

My advice is not to take such a young child to Mozambique on a holiday. There are no safe anti-malarial medications available for this age group.
