Vaccinations are Not Required.
No vaccinations required but make sure you have plenty of sun lotion,good quality sun glasses and
a safari hat if you're super sensitive.
Vaccinations are not compulsory, although some are "recommended" e.g. Hep A (had this done last week and experienced no side-effects or pain whatsoever). My GP also recommended having Yellow Fever Vaccine as we are visiting Isla Margarita as there was an outbreak there a few years ago. Wouldn't be a problem visiting Isla Margarita without the vaccine, but was concerned over entry into our next ports of call. Having read about the symptoms/effects of Yellow Fever we are planning to have this done next week! Some cruise lines also recommend having a flu vaccine. Also, I always make sure my tetanus jab is up-to-date.
This is a good and very full reply. I would agree with all of it. We had hepatitis A vaccine and yellow fever vaccine prior to visiting that coast. I think that yellow fever vaccine is a pre-requisite if you are visiting Devil's Island, French Guyana just a little further along from Isla di Margarita so if you are on the north side of South America an advisory phone call may be a good idea. ...
