Croatia Travel Health Advice
No vaccinations are required, but it is recommended that all travellers get vaccinations for hepatitis A and hepatitis B. Travellers who plan to spend a significant amount of time travelling off the beaten track should consider getting a typhoid vaccination. There is a risk of tick-borne encephalitis for those travelling in forested areas during the summer months.
The medical facilities and care in Croatia is fairly good, with free emergency medical care available to UK citizens with a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), though some medicines are in short supply in public facilities. Non-UK nationals are advised to invest in comprehensive health insurance and those who need particular medications should take the supply needed for the duration of their stay with them, with a doctor's letter on hand to get them through customs.
