What if I get sick while in Galapagos? Do I need any special vaccines?

Medical services and prescription drugs availability in the Galapagos Islands are minimal. Visitors to the Islands must bring enough of their own prescriptions. Most pharmacies do not stock branded prescriptions so the generic chemical name is needed.

The hospitals in Puerto Ayora and Puerto Baquerizo Moreno are not sophisticated at all and most illnesses and injuries need to be treated in the mainland; however, there are a few Doctors available most of the time and airlines provide flexibility to evacuate people needing medical attention.
