Mexico Travel Recommendation

Postby Jerilynn » Fri Feb 01, 2013 12:51 pm

Should one get the Hepatitis A vaccine if one is planning a trip to MEX? If this is too 'medical' and the administrators want to remove it, I understand.

When I first started looking at international travel I did the Hep A and Hep B vaccines. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Thanks for the reminder. For a trip to Mexico City last March the travel clinic gave us HepA and we need to get our booster shots..

Here is the CDC information on vaccinations for Mexico:

Every medical professional in the USA should be vaccinated for Hepatitis A/B, let alone for Mexico. For dental work, Hepatitis B protection in some countries is particularly important.
