Default Shots before Cruising

I was just wondering, for a Caribbean cruise are there any extra shots we need to take. I know of a friend who spent 6 months on a ship and had to get tons of shots and take lots of pills before he was allowe dto come aboard.

Default Re: Shots before Cruising


This is a question that you should ask your doctor. You may have have health or medical reasons that require you to have certain shots before leaving the country. Only your doctor can give specific advice to you.

In general terms, the CDC advises that people should have a Hepatitis A plus follow up and Tetanus shot or booster.

However, there are no "requirements" for specific shots to take a standard Western or Eastern Caribbean cruise. Other itineraries will have different requirements.

Take care,
