Hi there! I have been watching the message board for a few weeks now and I know a lot of you are there the first week of May - and staying at the Banana Beach. I am really looking forward to this trip.....My question is about having to take all the medical shots before I go. Are the Hep A & B and Typhoid really necessary? I think all my other questions have been aswered! Thanks for your help. cindy

The only shots I took were the ones at Mata Rocks of Tequilla. All joking aside, unless you are in the jungle for the majority of your trip I wouldn't waste my time. But that's just me. Have a great time and hope to see you there in May.

A person should have their tetanus up to date anyway, and nowadays Hep A should be standard too. Not mater where you are but for Caribbean travel it is wise.

Did you know that you could get Hep B from deep kissing? Anyone not in a monogamous relationship might want to think about that.

A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

Yep, those shots at Mata Rocks sure do the trick! Also, at BCs, the Palapa, etc......

When we went to Costa Rica a few years ago I didn't need any shots for that (got Hep A shot just in case) and we were out trekking through the jungle etc. So I doubt you'd need anything for Belize. We took precautionary malaria medication but that won't be necessary in Belize -- especially out on Ambergris.
