Seychelles is in a generally healthy climate, meaning the island does not have malaria, yellow fever, cholera or any other tropical disease. However, some doctors may recommend a few shots before traveling, such as typhoid and polio injections. Also, if visitors have previously traveled through an infected area like Kenya within a week of coming to Seychelles, they have to have a yellow fever vaccination. One more precaution is that there is a small possibility of rabies in certain parts of the country.
