Grenada Travel Health Advice

Dengue fever is common in Latin America and the Caribbean and cases have been reported in Grenada. A yellow fever vaccination certificate is required from travellers over one year of age coming from countries with risk of yellow fever transmission. Travellers should also consider vaccinations for hepatitis A and hepatitis B, and those planning to eat outside of hotels and restaurants may want to get a typhoid vaccination. Good medical care is available in the urban areas of Grenada but most doctors and hospitals expect payment in cash, regardless of travel health insurance. Grenada doesn't have a decompression chamber for divers; the nearest decompression chambers are in Tobago and Barbados, 30 minutes away by air ambulance. The water in Grenada is clean and safe to drink.
