hola Dominican Republic
Some people traveling to the Dominican Republic should consider being vaccinated for the following:
Malaria – risk for malaria in most parts of the Dominican Republic with the exceptions of the cities of Santiago and Santo Domingo. Consider chemoprophylaxis if traveling to one of these areas. Chemoprophylaxis consists of tablets or capsules to be taken daily before, during, and after your stay.
Rabies – vaccination should be considered in travelers planning to work with animals, in those spending a long period of time in the Dominican Republic, people going to rural areas, and for children as they are less likely to report that they have been bitten or scratched by an animal. Vaccination for rabies requires 3 injections followed by 1 booster if needed for future travel.
