Travel Vaccinations for U.S. Virgin Islands

The table below provides a general guide as to the Travel Vaccinations that may be advised to you for travel to U.S. Virgin Islands

The four major islands in the U.S. Virgin Islands each has its own distinct flavour and it’s easy to visit them all, with quick links by ferry or local air services. The hectic duty free port of Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas is a regular last port of call for cruise ships returning to the U.S., so if it’s world class shops you want, this is the place. In the evenings, this fast-paced city comes alive with great restaurants and vivid nightlife. The quaint town of Christiansted on St. Croix is a haven for sailors and divers alike, and still reflects its Dutch colonial past. The beach of your dreams is probably on St. John, most of which is dedicated to the National Park Service, and is celebrated for its unspoiled beauty. Absolute must-see is Trunk Bay beach, high on National Geographic’s list of top ten beaches in the world, where rainbow coloured fish play around reefs with a marked snorkelling trail. Your first stop on your way to the U.S. Virgin Islands 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 U.S.V.I.

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 U.S. Virgin Islands

In the months from April to end June, temperatures in the U.S. V.I. are normally around 27-30, and somewhat cooler the rest of the year. Take care to protect your skin with a good sun block lotion, 20 or higher, and use it often, re-applying after snorkelling or swimming.

It is not safe to drink the public water in the U.S. V.I. Spring water and purified water are both cheap and readily available. Bring lots with you wherever you go and replenish fluids often, throughout the day.

Even though these islands are U.S. property, and admittedly there are signs of American fast food creeping into the daily fare, especially on St. Thomas, the dominant influence on U.S. Virgin islands cuisine remains West Indian. Your best bet is the lovely fresh fish prepared daily in almost any restaurant. There is a wonderful choice of grouper, snapper, mahi mahi, wahoo, and yellowtail, among others, usually served with hot lime sauce. Try the traditional Callaloo soup, made with green leafy vegetables, and mixed with salt beef, fish, crab, ham bone, okra and various herbs and spices, or if you are a fan of curries, the curried goat is a classic regional dish, made with cardamom, herbs and onions. Fruits are plentiful and are made into ice creams, like mango ice cream, and fresh juices. The local Cruzan rum is something most visitors find unforgettable.

Should you require health care in the U.S. V.I., there are good facilities at Charlotte Amalie, Cruz Bay, St. John, and in Christiansted, St. Croix. For the most part, the standard of care is good but it is important that you 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 or hiking.

Aside from observing the normal precautions, visitors are safe in the U.S. Virgin Islands, however there are instances of petty crime, and it is important to be aware that on St. Thomas and St. Croix, it is not advisable to walk alone on the beach at night. Keep your valuables under lock and key and avoid carrying large sums of cash. Mosquitoes are a problem so do have insecticide with you to prevent being bitten,
