Tuvalu Health Care and Vaccinations
Travellers are recommended to take out full medical insurance before departure. Tuvalu's only hospital is in Funafuti; the outer islands only have trained nurses. More serious and complicated problems may require medicinal evacuation to Fiji or Australia.

Food and drink: 

All water is stored in tanks and supply is limited so visitors are advised to use water sparingly and take local advice.

Other risks: 

Vaccinations against tuberculosis and hepatitis B are sometimes advised.
