Vaccination

Recommended Posts

This may be a weird question, but has anyone thought about vaccination for hepatitis A and B. I know you can get infected through food or water. But I mean, I am going to a pretty reputable resort (couples negril).

 

As anyone thought about this at all...and what are you doing?

Hepatitis A is only administered to people traveling to under developed countries. Ask your primary physician if Jamaica is considered under developed? I have been to Jamaica four times and have never had any issues. It is transmitted from poor sanitation, shellfish from contaminated waters and from workers not properly washing their hands (fecal/oral). Once you have been exposed your body develops antibodies to protect you from getting it again.

Hepatitis B everyone should be vaccinated against. It is transmitted from blood and body fluids. Example is sexual contact and drug addicts.

So again speak with your physician regarding your concern with contacting Hepatitis.

I already have my Hep A & B due to working in the health care field.  I didn't even consider Dukoral.  Did you have to pay for it?

I had topay 40$ for doc appointment, I think Twinrex(Hep A+B) was 70$ and Dukoral was 80$. Also it is possible that twinrex for 80$ and Dukoral 70$.

I am just too afraid to get sick for my wedding.

    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
    • It's really tough when you put your heart and soul into planning your destination wedding and people aren't supportive for whatever reason. I think maybe letting people know how much it will cost for 2 weeks may be an issue -- a lot of people can't take that much time off and I"m guessing because it's such an extended period of time, the price may seem high to her. A good way of presenting a destination wedding celebration is to give rates based on 4 days, 3 nights -- which is typically what resorts will require for a group booking. This way, people will view it more of an extended weekend celebration and the time off as well as the costs becomes much more feasible to people. More likely, you'll have guests who will opt to stay longer and at that point you just let them know how much the extra cost will be. I suggest you talk to your best friend straight up about this and let her know how important it is for her to be there and find out what is holding her back. Communication is key!!
