Marshall Islands: Travel Medicine, Vaccinations, and Warnings

Infectious diseases

On the Marshall Islands, the following infectious diseases, which are rarely or rarely widespread in Germany and Central and Northern Europe, are to be expected:

  • Malaria, there is no risk of malaria in the country.
  • Dengue fever disease
  • Intestinal infections from contaminated food or water, including amoeba, lamblia, salmonella, shigella, worm infestation and all kinds of viruses and bacteria.
  • Filariasis
  • tetanus
  • Typhoid, an infection risk only exists for travelers who can come into contact with polluted water or contaminated food.

Recommended vaccinations

when traveling to the Marshall Islands are recommended vaccinations against the following diseases:

  • Cholera, only among travelers who may come into contact with polluted water or food. (Vaccination compulsory see below)
  • Diphtheria, a vaccination against diphtheria should always exist, also in the home country.
  • Hepatitis A and B, vaccination against hepatitis B, is only required for those who may come into contact with blood or who have sexual contact.
  • Tetanus, a vaccination against tetanus, should always exist, also in the home country.
  • Typhoid, only in travelers who may come into contact with polluted water or contaminated food.

Compulsory vaccination

There is a compulsory vaccination against cholera for those people who are arriving from an area currently infected with cholera. An HIV test is required from people who want to stay in the country for more than 30 days, as well as from applicants for residence permits or work permits. In certain circumstances the results of foreign HIV tests are accepted.

Who pays for vaccinations in Germany?

Most people in Germany are vaccinated against a number of infectious diseases at an early age. However, the vaccination protection only lasts up to 10 years, in some cases even shorter. Therefore, before traveling abroad, you should carefully consider against which infectious diseases a vaccination is necessary or useful in the country concerned and whether the vaccination protection, if applicable, was not too long ago.

Most statutory health insurances have been reimbursing the costs for the following vaccinations since June 2007.

There is even no 10 € practice fee - but the insured usually have to pay the statutory additional payment, which is 10% of the vaccine price - that is at least 5 € and a maximum of 10 €. Under these conditions, the following vaccinations are free of charge:

  • cholera
  • diphtheria
  • Early summer meningoencephalitis (TBE)
  • Yellow fever
  • Hepatitis A and B
  • Meningococcal meningitis
  • Pneumococci
  • Polyo (polio)
  • Tetanus (tetanus)
  • rabies
  • typhus

Some health insurance companies also reimburse the cost of malaria prophylaxis.

As a rule, private health insurance companies (inquire beforehand) also cover the costs mentioned.
