Vaccinations/Healthy Travel

Recommended Posts

We JUST decided on the Majestic Elegance in Punta Cana for March next year! Are any other DR brides recommending vaccinations or other preventive health precautions to guests? (e.g., cholera vaccine, malaria meds, avoiding drinking ANY water even on the campus of the resorts, etc.)  Obviously, the recent cholera outbreak is concerning me!

We are heading there in June- I am not recommending vaccines to our guests, but I am going to ask our pediatrician about our 15 month old daughter.  We are big into hand sanitizers and bottled water, and I hope this is enough to help keep us healthy while we're down there. 

 

Maybe we should look into vaccines.  It can't hurt to ask your PCP what they would recommend for your trip.  Better safe than sorry.

I took my son to the Pediatrician for his annual check up and I told him we were traveling in November and he instantly recommended Hepatitis A Vaccine, it has to do with something in the water in other countries that can harm children more than adults, it's given in two doses 6 months apart.... Thank God I took him now

We didn't recommend any vaccines, but the Hep A and Hep B ones might be a good idea.  I wouldn't take the malaria meds though... they are really hardcore and your chances of getting malaria while staying in a Punta Cana resort are pretty slim.

I dont think im going to recommend anything. You should be pretty safe on the resort from tainted water and what not.
