A trip to Asia, in this case the Maldives, is in many ways incomparable to a trip to Europe or other parts of the world. The nature, people, religion, everything about the Maldives is different from other countries. Proper preparation for your vacation is important to prevent unpleasant surprises. One of the things you have to think about is the vaccinations you need for the Maldives.
Maldives Required Vaccinations
You do not want to visit all the places of interest in Maldives and run the risk of becoming infected, altering your schedule. That is why we have made an overview of the most important vaccinations in the Maldives that are needed to make your trip run smoothly.
TIP – This is of course a general advice, for more specific information we would like to refer you to your local doctor, community health center or pharmacy.
Recommended vaccinations for the Maldives:
- DTP (Diphtheria, Tetanus, and Polio)
- Hepatitis A + B
- MMR (only if you have not had measles or a measles vaccination)
- Yellow fever is only mandatory if you have been in a yellow fever country seven days before entering the Maldives.
In addition to the necessary vaccinations, it is also good to take certain precautions that cannot be solved with vaccinations. This is mainly about medicines. We recommend that you always take these with you! Paracetamol can be bought everywhere, but if you need it immediately and you are in an uninhabited area, it is nice if it is in your backpack. We advise bringing;
- Malaria tablets (Malerone or Lariam)
- Diarrhea inhibitors
- Anti-mosquito spray (DEET)
- Mosquito net
If you follow the above recommendations, you are well prepared for your trip to the Maldives!
