I am seriously considerring going to Cuba.
We are unvaccinated.
Hep B and C are not overly large concerns for travel to Cuba - but Hep A is or might be.
Has anyone on this forum travelled to a place where Hep A is prevalent - and did you or did you not vaccinate? Why or why not?
From the research I have done, it does not look like Hep A is a big deal for kids, but can be a bigger deal as you get older. The kids are 8, 12 and 15.
Some sites say Hep A vax is recommended for Cuba - but then others say if you are staying on the resort (which we are) you are probably fine.
TBH I will probably not vaccinate. I will, however, pick another location if Hep A is a big deal.
Anyone have any btdt? Cuba specific would be nice, but anywhere with a moderate or high prevalence on Hep A is welcome.
Just got back from the dominican republic. They rec the vaccine for travel there.
I would not vaccinate for Hep A, especially if I was staying at a resort.
The only circumstance in which I would entertain the idea if I was going to be in the peace corps or something where I knew I would be in areas where I may not have access to sanitary living conditions and clean water and untainted food.
