Vaccines for Haiti
There are no required shots to enter the country of Haiti.
For the CDC recommended shots: http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/destinations/haiti.aspx
We strongly suggest you contact your family doctor or a Traveler's Clinic in your area.
Routine Vaccines you probably already have:
MMR Vaccine (measles/mumps/rubella)
DPT Vaccine (diphtheria/pertussis/tetanus) – make sure it has been updated in the last 7-10 years
Others Shots Recommended:
Hepatitis A - Recommended for all unvaccinated people traveling to or working in countries with an intermediate or high level of hepatitis A virus infection where exposure might occur through food or water. Cases of travel-related hepatitis A can also occur in travelers to developing countries with "standard" tourist itineraries, accommodations, and food consumption behaviors. CDC Information on Hepatitis A: http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/hcp/vis/vis-statements/hep-a.html
Tyhpoid - Recommended for all unvaccinated people traveling to or working in the Caribbean, especially if staying with friends or relatives or visiting smaller cities, villages, or rural areas where exposure might occur through food or water. If you take the oral vaccine it will last 5 years whereas the shot will only last 3 years. CDC Information on Typhoid: http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/hcp/vis/vis-statements/typhoid.html
Malaria – please visit the Center for Disease Control website. Some participants choose to take anti-malaria pills, others may choose to use more natural methods to help prevent malaria (neem pills/liquid drops), while some just use common bug sprays and lotions. Please consult your doctor as to what will work best for you.
Additional Shot: (mainly for doctors/nurses – but can be taken by others for precautionary reasons)
Hepatitis B - Recommended for all unvaccinated persons traveling to or working in countries with intermediate to high levels of endemic HBV transmission, especially those who might be exposed to blood or body fluids, have sexual contact with the local population, or be exposed through medical treatment (e.g., for an accident).
