I can't take any anti-malaria pills (chloroquine) or get a Hep A shot, because I'm pregnant...should I be worried? How common is Malaria in the DR?? (Punta Cana/Bavaro area)
I went to the local Travel Medical Clinic yesterday for my 19 month old son to receive a Hep A shot, and was informed about the Malaria risk also. Doctor said it would be safe for my son to take a small dose of the anti-malaria pill....I concerned about the side effects for him? Has anyone else given this med to their young children?
I really want to just have a good relaxing time on this well needed vacation (that was going to be in Cancun before the hurricane hit), am I being overly cautious???
