It is recommended that most travellers get the combined booster vaccine for diphtheria, tetanus and polio, as well as the hepatitis A vaccine before going to Costa Rica. For some travellers, rabies and typhoid vaccines are also recommended.
Below, you can see the recommended vaccinations for Costa Rica. These are official recommendations, and whether or not you will need any of the listed vaccines depends on a variety of factors, including your medical history and the details of your trip. Book an appointment online to get vaccinated at your local pharmacy. If you are unsure as to which vaccinations you require, book a phone consultation with one of our medical advisors, who will create a vaccine plan based on your needs.
