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

While each island in the Caribbean has its own individual history and charm, there is something magical and unique about St. Vincent & the Grenadines that captures the imagination. Just a day or two on St. Vincent, visiting lively Kingstown, with its cobblestone streets, and relaxing on a black volcanic beach are enough to tell you this is something special. Imagine how clown fish and parrot fish look even more colourful on a canvas of black sand! Spend the afternoon splashing in a cold water pool at the base of Baleine Falls.

After St. Vincent, there are still 31 other islands in the Grenadines to fall in love with. Sail to famous, exclusive Mustique, or find your own secluded beach on Palm Island. Dive at Canouan, take in the restaurants and nightlife on Bequia, (pronounced Bekway), or go yachting off Union Island.

Booked to have a blood test and vaccination. I have to say everything was no less than 5 stars, from the booking process to the appointment, the staff are very knowledgeable and super accommodating. I’m not great with needles but lovely Paige was very reassuring and professional, probably my best experience with needles as I did not feel a thing. Will definitely be using this clinic again.

Further Travel Health Advice for St. Vincent and the Grenadines

St. Vincent & the Grenadines are tropical, with light breezes and temperatures rising to 30 or more in the dry season, November until May. When spending time at the beach, or snorkelling, use a good sun block lotion with SPF 20 or higher. Apply liberally and often. When on tour, remember to wear light clothing and bring lots of bottled water with you.

The tap water in St. Vincent & the Grenadines is not considered safe to drink, however, bottled water is cheap, and can be purchased almost anywhere. Remember to drink often and whether it be water or fruit juices, replenish fluids throughout the day. If you are unsure about the quality of water or ice, check with the desk at your hotel or resort.

When in Rome, and so forth. Major hotels and resorts in St. Vincent & the Grenadines will serve you just about any International cuisine you have a taste for, but don’t deny yourself a true taste of island cuisine. St. Vincent is proud of its tradition of serving only fresh caught fish and home grown produce. Savour the National dish, fried jackfish with roasted breadfruit, or choose from a tempting menu of mahi mahi, snapper, bonito or kingfish. For a fascinating change of flavours, taste the stew called Billjau, with salted fish, onions, tomatoes, hot peppers, and coconut oil. All the fruit and vegetables you eat in St. Vincent are home-grown, thanks to the fertile volcanic soil. The local beer is Hairoun, which is very refreshing but most international beers are available here, as well as imported wines and spirits, and the local molasses rum is not to be missed. Try a delicious sunset rum punch but take care, as the rum is no less than 70percent alcohol.

For health care in St. Vincent & the Grenadines, there is a general hospital in Kingstown, as well as public hospitals and a few private hospitals throughout the islands. However, there is no hyperbaric chamber for decompression illness. For the most part, the standard of care is reasonably high, but it is important that you arrange in advance to have enough money with you to pay for any health care you might need, as Doctors will ask for cash payment.

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

Aside from observing the normal precautions, visitors are safe and warmly welcomed in St. Vincent & the Grenadines.
