Chikungunya Fever?

Traveling to the Caribbean this summer?

Watch out for Chikungunya Fever, which is spreading throughout the Caribbean.

This tropical disease is characterized by fever, rash, nausea, and joint aches.

It is transmitted by the Aedes aegypti mosquito so it is important to use effective insect repellants and long sleeves/pants as well as mosquito netting.
