Travel Vaccinations for St. Eustatius

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

Just slightly off the beaten path, peaceful St. Eustatius (affectionately called Statia) has escaped the fate of most neighbouring Caribbean islands, and still offers untrampled scenery, pristine coral reefs teeming with fish, and beaches you can call your own. What’s to do on this tiny jewel of an island? Visit the excellent Historical Museum or Old Fort Oranje, built in 1629, with its original cannons and bastions, high on a cliff affording a sweeping view of the waterfront. See the Botanical Gardens and the Marine Park, or find out what it’s like to experience the total relaxation of diving with schools of colourful fish on untouched coral reefs. Your first stop on your way to St. Eustatius 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 St. Eustatius.

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 St. Eustatius

St. Eustatius has a dry, hot climate, and temperatures vary from 22 up to 31. It is important to protect your skin by using a good sun block lotion with SPF 20 or higher. Apply liberally and often. When snorkelling, take care to put extra sun block on your back. Stay hydrated throughout the day, and bring lots of water with you wherever you go in St. Eustatius.

The tap water in St. Eustatius is considered safe to drink, however, bottled mineral water is widely available. Remember to drink often and whether it be water or fruit juices, replenish fluids throughout the day. Avoid ice cubes.

You can expect a good selection of restaurants here, serving anything from the local Creole cuisine to International specialties, such as Cantonese and French, but it goes without saying that if you prefer fresh rather than imported, you might want to stay with seafood. Regional specialties include pickled conch (pronounced conk), spicy grilled fish, and lobster. Caribbean rums are imported here, since rum is no longer brewed in St. Eustatius, and most restaurants have a fair selection of wines. The beer of choice is, naturally, Heineken, called “a Greenie”.

If you need health care in St. Eustatius, there is a good hospital in Oranjestad, as well as a private clinic. The standard of care is good, however, for more complicated medical procedures, many people travel to St. Maarten. Remember that you should arrange in advance to have enough money with you to pay for any health care you might need.

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

There is virtually no crime on this little island, so aside from observing the normal precautions, visitors are very safe in St. Eustatius.
