Dominica Travel Health Advice
Hepatitis A, hepatitis B, MMR (measles, mumps, rubella), and tetanus-diphtheria (revaccination every ten years) are recommended for visitors to Dominica, and yellow fever vaccination is compulsory for entry for those coming from an infected area. For those travellers who will be eating and drinking outside of hotels and restaurants a typhoid vaccination may also be a good precaution. Dengue fever is on the increase and visitors should take precautions against mosquito bites. There is a high prevalence of HIV/AIDS. Medical facilities on the island are limited, so health insurance with evacuation cover is recommended. It is advisable to bring any personal medications you may need with you; make sure you have all the necessary documents from your doctor to get the medication through customs. Food and drinks are safe to consume in hotels and restaurants, but it is preferable to drink bottled water.
