My husband and I are going to Puerto Plata in January (leaving Jan. 10). We are getting all kinds of information on vaccinations/medications... I thought I could post my questions here, since many of you are experienced travelers :) Here goes:
- Are there any MANDATORY vaccinations we should get before going to the DR? What about RECOMMEDED ones? (I should mention that we do not plan on leaving the facility - Iberostar Costa Dorada).
- Some people say we need to take pills for malaria, others said it's a shot... Can someone tell me more about this?
- Are we too late to get vaccinated? (since we,re leaviing in 4 weeks?)
- Suppose my husband and I do not get vaccinated... Aside from local water/ice, what should be avoid food and drink-wise?
Thanks in advance for your help, I really appreciate it!
