Hep A vaccine

My son just got his Hep A shot - 10 days before travel. Is he still at risk? My husband and I don't know when or if we got ours- how high is the risk for Hep A in Puerto Vallarta?

Hi Neighbor, and welcome to the TripAdvisor! (I also live in Naperville when I'm not in Bucerias.)

As far as I'm concerned, you may be "at risk" anywhere in the world, but I don't think it's a good idea to get medical advice on travel websites.

Please contact your doctor for this information.

Agree, check with your doctor. That being said, I have been traveling to the PV/NV area for 25 years and never gotten any shots of any type.

I did not get Hep A/B shots because I live in Mexico, I got them so I wouldn't get hepatitus anywhere! Check with your doctor, mine recmmended the Hep shots when I lived in the US.
