Solomon Islands Travel Health Advice
A yellow fever vaccination is required for travellers to the Solomon Islands arriving from an infected area. Immunisation against hepatitis A and hepatitis B is recommended, and the territory has in the past few years been subject to outbreaks of dengue fever and rubella.
A Measles-mumps-rubella vaccine is recommended for all travellers born after 1956, as is a typhoid vaccine (except short-term business travellers or cruise ship passengers). Tap water should not be drunk unless it has been boiled, filtered or chemically disinfected.
Medical facilities are very limited so pack a personal medical kit and bring adequate supplies of all medications. Should a doctor be needed, the main facility is the Central Hospital and National Referral Hospital in Honiara. Comprehensive medical insurance is recommended for travellers.
