Interesting question posted in a FB group and came here to see if the topic every came up.  Did not find "vaccination" in a search so am going to jump into the abyss and post an original question.


How many people here check the official Embassy / Consulate websites for the destinations you are visiting in order to determine if you should get any shots or take other prophylactic measures relative to disease control?

I realize with the Caribbean, there are not too many worries... but cruises have expanded into more exotic geography (e.g., Africa, S. America) and this kind of preparation is important.  It's not so straightforward either.  If you transit through a yellow fever zone on your way to another destination, some of those countries require you to get a yellow fever shot even if you never took a step on land.

Anyone care to share?
