Hepatitis B

Malaria prevention

No malaria transmission in Belize City or the islands visited by tourists. There is only a very limited risk of malaria in the south (Stann Creek).

Prévention :

  • Pas de chimioprophylaxie
  • Protection contre les piqûres de moustiques

En cas de fièvre survenant pendant le séjour ou dans les mois qui suivent le retour, il convient de consulter un médecin le plus rapidement possible.
