How can chikungunya infections be prevented?

No vaccine or medication will protect against chikungunya.

If you are planning to travel to an area where chikungunya disease occurs, you should take the proper precautions. Consult a health care provider or visit a travel health clinic preferably 6 weeks before you leave.

You can help prevent the disease by protecting yourself from mosquito bites, especially during peak biting periods. These occur just after sunrise and before sunset.
