Travel Vaccinations for Montserrat

The table below provides a general guide as to the Travel Vaccinations that may be advised to you for travel to Montserrat

Although Montserrat is known for the activity of its Soufrière Hills volcano, there is so much else on this Emerald isle of the Caribbean that makes it stand out. Nature lovers drawn by the raw fury of the volcano take hiking tours up to the Funicular de Sant Joan to catch the breathtaking view above the monastery, and trek up to Runaway Ghaut to drink from the natural spring. Montserrat is famous for the quality of its diving, and divers marvel at the pristine condition of its reefs.

Don’t miss seeing Little Bay, which is being developed as the new capital and port city. Before you start packing, your first stop on your way to Montserrat should be a visit to our Travel Health Clinic, four to eight weeks before departure so that you will be completely safe and up-to-date with the Vaccinations you need for travel to Montserrat.

Incredible service – so helpful
Excellent service! Chazile went above and beyond to prepare me for my travels to south east Asia. Very kind, sharp and added helpful bits of information that will be useful during my travels. Even created a vaccine booklet for me that I asked for to keep track of my vaccines for the future. Highly recommended The London Vaccination Clinic. Thanks again Chazile 🙂 Nick

Travel vacines

Attended a consultation for travel vacines, the nurse explained everything with care, provided good advice. We then add a follow up consultation with a different nurse for the vaccines and was also very kind and professional. Was very impressed, we did not feel pressured to have more vacines then reasonable and both nurses gave pricing information upfront.

Very positive experience

Really easy to book and the nurse who I saw in Liverpool Street was really kind and helpful. She went through my vaccination history, what I needed for my trip and explained everything I needed to know ahead of administrating the vaccine I needed.
I am glad I arrived early as the venue was tricky to find as the name of the building has changed so doesn’t match Google maps. Put me in a slight panic as I thought I was going to miss my appointment but I found it in the end!

My nurse was a beautiful soul inside…

My nurse was a beautiful soul inside and out. I have a fear of needles and she was so patient and reassuring from beginning to end. She asked me questions, helped me to relax and made me feel like an individual rather than just someone on the list for the day.

Further Travel Health Advice for Montserrat

Montserrat is subtropical, with cooling breezes from the trade winds. When visiting one of the island’s black sandy beaches, protect yourself with sunblock, and make a habit of carrying bottled water with you wherever you go, to stay hydrated. Wear lightweight clothing with long sleeves when hiking through heavily forested areas, to guard against insect bites.

The drinking water on Montserrat is considered safe, but if you choose to drink bottled water, remember to drink lots of it when touring, hiking, or lounging on the beach.

Simplicity and sophistication both describe the way food is cooked and served in Montserrat. Try the National dish, called Goat Water, which is actually the local version of Irish stew. Delicacies such as lobster burgers and coconut scallops are served in restaurants and small cafes, along with such simple dishes as pasta, fried fish and salads, using local produce and herbs. Fruits of all kinds are plentiful in Montserrat and you can choose fresh juices made from papaya, cashew, tamarind, or guava, to name just a few. Don’t leave Montserrat without sampling one of their famous rum punch drinks.

If you need health care in Montserrat, there is a good general hospital where you can obtain care at no charge with proof of U.K. residency. In general the standard of care is quite good. Arrange in advance to have plenty of money with you to pay for any health care you might need, just in case.

Protect yourself, and your family, with comprehensive travel health insurance which will cover your intended itinerary and any potentially risky activities.

Aside from observing the normal precautions, such as not carrying large sums of money, visitors are safe in Montserrat, and the crime rate is very low. When planning a tour in the southern regions of the island, be sure to check in advance for any updates in the Maritime exclusion zones, which change regularly according to volcanic activity.
