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?
