they are not required but it would be better to discuss with a qualified professional, not a buncha travel forum types.

No they are not necessary.

You might just go to the doctor to check.

As a frequent traveller I always keep mine up-to-date, but most are free in the UK anyway! I always think a tetanus shot is a good idea wherever you are going. You certainly won't need yellow fever or malarials. But, yes, consult your doctor.

If by "necessary" you mean they will not let you into the country, the answer is "no." Been to Mexico four times, never had one.

But it might be advisable depending on one's personal medical history, etc.
