|Help me about Sint Maarten Travel Vaccine & Medicine !
Travelling to Sint Maarten from Singapore. Vaccinations and medications required.
Make sure you are up-to-date with your routine vaccinations before you travel to any destination. Some vaccines may also be required for travel to Sint Maarten. These vaccines include:
Get your Mumps, Measles, and Rubella (MMR) vaccine before going to Sint Maarten. These vaccines may have been given during childhood, but over time, your immunity may have weakened, thus making you susceptible to being infected. Immunity testing is available, and if the levels are found to be non-protective, then the vaccination should be given.
Get your Tetanus, Diphtheria, and acellular Pertussis (Tdap) vaccine before going to Sint Maarten. During childhood, the Diphtheria, Tetanus, and Pertussis (DTP) vaccine may have been given, but over time, your immunity may have weakened. Shim Clinic recommends that every 10 years, you should repeat the adult version, which is the Tdap vaccine.
Get your Varicella (Chickenpox) vaccine before going to Sint Maarten. Particularly for those who recall never having been infected with Chickenpox in the past. Varicella immunity testing is available. And if levels are found to be not protective, then the vaccination should be given.
Get your Polio vaccine before going to Sint Maarten. Although this vaccine may have been given during childhood, but over time, your immunity may have weakened, thus making you susceptible to being infected.
Get your annual Influenza (Flu) vaccine before going to Sint Maarten. Every 6 months, the World Health Organisation (WHO) issues new Influenza vaccine composition recommendations. As the recommended composition may change with each season, Shim Clinic recommends that you should keep yourself updated with the latest vaccine.

Rabies is not a major risk to most travellers to Sint Maarten. Shim Clinic recommends rabies vaccine particularly for these groups:
- Travellers involved in outdoor and other activities in remote areas that put them at risk for animal bites (such as adventure travel and caving).
- People who would be working with or around animals (such as veterinarians, wildlife professionals and researchers).
- People who are taking long trips, or moving to Sint Maarten.
- Children, because they tend to play with animals, might not report bites, and are more likely to have animal bites on their head and neck.
