Travel Vaccinations for St. Lucia

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

Luxuriant with forests, rolling green hills and picture postcard vistas of the Caribbean, St. Lucia is a haven for water sports enthusiasts, photographers, and honeymooners. The port of Castries is one of the Caribbean’s loveliest natural harbours, welcoming cruise ships every day. Most first-time visitors flock to the beach at Rodney Bay for wind surfing, sailing, and jet skiing, but there is so much of the island to discover.

Rent a jeep and head south to Soufrière to see the famous Pitons rising from the sea, then take a walking tour through banana and coconut plantations. Visit the bubbling sulphur springs and waterfalls at the world’s only drive in volcano, and don’t miss serenely beautiful Marigot Bay, the site where the original Dr. Doolittle was filmed. Your first stop on your way to St. Lucia 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. Lucia.

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. Lucia

St. Lucia is tropical and owes its lush green landscape to its rainforest climate. After a rainfall, the heat can become more oppressive, so remember to drink lots of bottled water, and use a good sun block lotion at the beach. Apply liberally and reapply often. At the beach and on tour, remember to wear head covering.

The tap water in St. Lucia is chlorinated and considered safe to drink, but seasoned travellers seldom risk ruining their holiday by drinking water they are not accustomed to. Bottled or distilled water is cheap and readily available. Bring lots with you wherever you go in St. Lucia, and replenish fluids throughout the day, especially if you are taking the sun.

Thanks to its rich, fertile soil, St. Lucia produces an enormous range of vegetables and fruits such as papaya, plum, avocado, coconut, and watermelon, to name just a few, and you will find these used in main dishes, including the National dish, green bananas, called figs, with dried salted cod. St. Lucia’s cuisine shows its French, Creole and Caribbean influences in spicy fish or meat stews, langouste (lobster) which is cooked in any number of ways, fried breadfruit, served as crisps, and fried or cracked conch, and Accra, deep fried fish cakes made with salted cod and spices. For a cool refreshing drink, try golden apples, made from unripened apples and sugar. Heineken beer and Piton beer are both brewed on St. Lucia, and the rum punch is a must as you watch the sun set over Marigot Bay.

There is a hospital in Castries and another in Vieux Fort, as well as a clinic in Rodney Bay. For the most part, the standard of care is above average. It is, however, important that you arrange in advance to have enough money with you to pay for any health care you might need at private clinics.

Protect yourself, and your family, with comprehensive travel health insurance which will cover your intended itinerary and any potentially risky activities, such as diving, and hiking through the rainforest.

Aside from observing the normal precautions, visitors are mostly safe in St. Lucia, but there is the risk of petty crime from hotels, boats, and holiday homes. When hiking, stay on well trodden trails and avoid dense grassy areas, to avoid a deadly bite from a fer de lance pit viper. Approximately 76,000 British Nationals visited St. Lucia in 2012, mostly without incident.
