I will be going on the Rhapsody of the Sea to Key West, Grand Cayman and Cozumel. Our travel papers say that we need to check with our TA to determine if we need documentation of inoculation. Do we need to get shots before we go on this cruise? Yikes-we leave real soon!
Kaitlin... there is only ONE answer to your question... and I'm sure your t/a will tell you the same thing. Don't rely on advice here on the boards or anywhere else. Call your own doctor, give him your itinerary and rely on his advice. He will know whether or not you need shots based on your own medical history and advisories he has received, as a matter of course, from the CDC.
The questions seemed to be, "are shots necessary" which was answered correctly. They are currently no shots required to visit those islands. Mike and I both stated that one should maintain current shots for a couple of items as that is just sound healthcare. While you get those shots you will of course be talking to your Doctor who will advise you if anything else should be considered. We are not dispensing medical advice, nor will we ever, we were answering a specific questions as to requirements for travel.
