There is no vaccine to protect against dengue, but you can prevent it in your own home and community.

Steps you can take to prevent and control dengue:

  • Preventing mosquitoes from breeding by covering, emptying and cleaning water storage containers on a weekly basis and other areas of stagnant water.
  • Disposing of solid waste properly and removing artificial man-made habitats.
  • Allowing officers to come and spray your home to kill mosquitoes.
  • Installing window screens.
  • Wearing repellent and burning mosquito coils when outside.
  • Wearing long sleeved clothes.
  • Sleeping under a bed net.
