vaccines for kids going w. carrib?
 
hello all. Pediatrician recommended hepatitis A vaccine for my 11 & 15 year old for our cruise to Cozumel, Roatan, Belize & Grand Cayman. Waiting for a call from the health department re:more info.

anyone else familiar with this?

We went to Grand Cayman and Cozumel last year with a 10 yr old and a 14 yr old...had no Hep A vacinnations. We swam in both places. I had Hep A vacinnations this year at my place of employment...it was a series of 3 shots over 6 months. I am not sure if the same doses would be given for the kids...if so...would you have enough time to get them all in before you leave?

does eating the local food have anything to do with this?
