I was wondering if in fact you need malaria pills and hepatitis shots for Ambergris Caye?

I checked with my doctor, who has done mission work all over central america. he says no, unless you plan on being in the rainforest, or other areas for an extended period of time.
I do know that some take this precaution, but i don't think it's necessary, and the side effects of the malaria pills can be pretty brutal.

From what I've read, vacinations arn't
needed. Even in the states it doesn't hurt to get them. So, I got the tetnus, diptheria, Hepatitis B. I should have started sooner, am leaving for Belize end of Jan. The B is one shot, 2 months later another and the last in 4 months. Hepatitis A is in short supply and am on a list, so may not get that. Again not worried, just looking to have a great time in Belize.
