 Before you travel to Sri Lanka :

Sri Lanka is a fantastic place to holiday, but please bear in mind that it is also a tropical county and requires certain considerations. The following advice is intended as a helpful guide. We recommend, however, that before your departure you visit your local medical centre or a specialist travel health center for specific advice regarding recommended vaccinations, malaria and dengue prevention, and to discuss any underlying health concerns. It is worth doing this at least six weeks before you are due to travel to allow any new vaccinations time to take effect.

Vaccinations

Commonly recommended vaccinations for short term visits include:

Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Rabies,Tetanus, Typhoid

It should be recognized that advice can vary. For example, rabies protection is only recommended by some medical centers or some countries. Also consider Japanese encephalitis if travelling in rural areas.

Malaria & Dengue Prevention

You should only consider taking anti-malarial drugs if travelling to the far north of the country (Vavuniya and beyond). Chloroquine and Proguanil are typically prescribed and the course should be started before travel. Dengue fever and Chikungunya are present, particularly after the monsoon rains, and it is important that you protect yourself from being bitten by mosquitoes by using mosquito repellent.
