Malaria risk at Borobudur?

Jump to last reply

I've seen a lot of conflicting information regarding whether or not anti-malaria pills are needed when visiting Java, especially the Borobudur area. It seems the CDC used to say there was "high risk" there, but now I cannot find anything about Borobudur on their current site. Other health sites still mention Borobudur, but I'm wondering if that is outdated information. We'll be spending only 1 night at Monohara Hotel at Borobudur, so it seems our risk would be pretty low but I don't want to assume so and not get the pills if they are needed or recommended.

Everything I've ready about Bali indicates we do not need them for travel there, is that still correct? We'll be in Tanjung Benoa, Ubud, and Amed.

I asked my doctor and he told me to check the CDC and fax him a copy of their recommendations and he would write the prescription if needed. Unfortunately, what is on that site is very vague in regards to where we are actually going.
