Default southern caribbean-innoculations?

Hi all,

Can someone please tell me if any special innoculation/shots are required for a southern caribbean cruise? My wife and I leave this Friday it just occurred to me that some sort of shots may be required. We will be on the Golden Princess and ports will be Barbados, St Lucia, Antigua, St. Maarten & St. Thomas. Any info is MUCH appreciated. Thanks.

We did not need any on our Summit trip in March--did all the same ports except Antigua. Did need passports though!

We just returned Sunday from these ports and special innoculations were not required. Our pediatrician, however, recommended Hep A and Hep B innoculations due to the high rate of these diseases in the Caribbean and Mexico. We did do this for the kids as Hep B will be required for college anyway.

Not a bad idea We have a Panama Canal & a Mexico cruise on tap so I think we will get the hep shots to be safe Thank you for the tip!

My Dr . believes everyone travelling down south should have Hep A and of course Tetanus should be up- to-date.
