Cook Islands Health Care and Vaccinations
Comprehensive travel insurance is recommended. There is one government hospital (on Rarotonga).
Food and Drink
Tap water is relatively safe but may cause mild abdominal upsets. Bottled water is available and is advised for the first few weeks of the stay.
Vaccination against hepatitis B and tuberculosis is sometimes advised. There is no defence against dengue fever other than avoiding being bitten by mosquitoes.
