Zika and chikungunya viruses were first detected in Fiji in 2015. Examining surveillance, phylogenetic, and serologic data, we found evidence of low-level transmission of Zika and chikungunya viruses during 2013–2017, in contrast to the major outbreaks caused by closely related virus strains in other Pacific Island countries.
