At both sites, patients must have a Nurse Practitioner visit, not just a general nurse visit, for Malaria prophylaxis or any prescriptions. Nurse Practitioners are not there everyday. The general nurse can give vaccines any day but cannot prescribe medications. Cost is $40 per person by appointment only.
