Reunion Travel Health Advice
A yellow fever vaccination certificate is required from travellers coming from countries with risk of yellow fever transmission. Visitors to Réunion should take precautions against mosquito bites due to illnesses such as dengue fever and the chikungunya virus. Réunion's medical and sanitary facilities are very good. Most towns have doctors and clinics, while the principal hospital is in Saint-Denis. Tap water is usually safe for drinking. Public water sources are unsafe if labelled 'Eau non potable'. There is a reciprocal health agreement with the UK and most EU countries, whose citizens are entitled to low-cost emergency medical treatment on presentation of a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC).
