Exclamation Gt cdc recommendation

I was researching Grand Turk when I came upon the CDC recommending that people get the hepatitis A vaccine before going. I'm kind of shocked

This is fairly "boiler plate". You will see the same recommendation for Hep A, B given for most of the Caribbean islands and a multitude of countries.

Actually the Hep A and B vaccines are recommended for most countries.

There was a major outbreak of E-Coli on Grand Turk earlier this year and Carnival stopped going there until the source of the outbreak had been discovered and cleared up.

Take care,
Mike

I did look into it little more and there is no health advisory for GT just a recommendation, the same goes for all of the Bahamas . I do remember the outbreak earlier this year.
I'll be sure to eat a good lunch before I get off the ship and drink bottle water to play it safe.
