What vaccinations do I need for Fiji?

Page last updated 13 November 2018

The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends that all travellers are up-to-date with their routine vaccinations including; measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (whooping cough), hepatitis B, polio, influenza and pneumococcal disease. These vaccinations are given as part of the National Immunisation Program (NIP). For a full list please refer to the NIP schedule, available here  In some cases, you may need a booster or re-vaccination against a disease to ensure you still have immunity.

Other diseases that are considered a risk in Fiji include hepatitis A, hepatitis B and typhoid. Your doctor will be able to let you know which vaccinations are recommended for you, based on the time of year, destination/s, activities planned and the duration of your stay. 

In March 2018, the Fijian Ministry of Health and Medical Services issued a warning about an outbreak of meningococcal disease in Fiji. Vaccinations are available for meningococcal disease – speak to your GP.
