Default Shots required in the Caribbean?

Hello

Am I required to get any type of shots before going to the caribbean?

Going to bahamas, grand caymen, and costa maya (also key west but obviously not needed there)

I've never had any shots before cruising in the Caribbean. If you are concerned at all, just talk to your doctor.

I don't believe so. We just got back from St Martin and St Thomas and didn't need any.

NO SHOTS ARE REQUIRED. Been to all the places you mentioned, more than once and as recently as 2003. Very clean, Modern and lovely.

Yes, I highly recommend several shots while in the Caribbean. Start with coconut rum!

We didn't take any shot before sailing down there. But, it was a long time ago. I'm still not aware of any that need to be taken.

I have never had to get any shots, however you may want to talk with your MD about the Hepatitis A vacine that has become available.
