Tuvalu Health Care and Vaccinations
Travellers are recommended to take out full medical insurance before departure. Tuvalu's only hospital is in Funafuti; the outer islands only have trained nurses. More serious and complicated problems may require medicinal evacuation to Fiji or Australia.
Food and Drink
All water is stored in tanks and supply is limited so visitors are advised to use water sparingly and take local advice.
Vaccinations against tuberculosis and hepatitis B are sometimes advised.
