Depends: There are various medications used as preventive therapy for infants but their use depends on size/age. A thorough review can be found at the CDC website: www.cdcnc.gov/travel. Some must be pulverized from adult pills & placed in a flavored suspension. Check on these immediately since many should be started weeks in advance of travel.
