It would be hard to generalize about the need for shots in South America as some places like the interior/Amazon River you might be exposed to a variety of exotic diseases. Some urban areas of Chile and Argentina are safer. MY suggestions: Contact the Cruise Line and www.cdc.gov (Centers for Disease Control and Provention in Atlanta, GA) CDC probably has the most current and reliable information. You might also contact the embassy for the countries that you plan to visit as sometimes the country might require certain innoculations in order to enter the country. Your family physician or local Public Health Office are also good sources. Best of luck to you and enjoy your travels wherever they might take you... Frank
