Does anyone know what shots we're supposed to have for Belize? Hep. A&B? Tetanus?

Search under "immunizations" and you'll see lots of prior talk about this subject. If you're so inclined to do the Hep A & B shots, you're running too late for much effectiveness. I see from your earlier post that you're leaving for AC 6/26. In order for there to be any real value you should have had two of the three part series by the time you leave and the second shot is spaced one month from the first (if I remember correctly)so you're out of time. As for the tetanus, I always make sure my tetanus is up to date anytime I think I might be in a position where I couldn't get immediate medical help. Think that's just a good general rule of thumb. To be more to the point, though, no immunizations are REQUIRED for you to get into the country.

Definitely Hep A which is available as a single shot and tetanus. Hep A is usually contracted from unsanitary food handling, and it is possible for you to be exposed to it even in the U.S.
