Malaria and other diseases?

I read on the CDC site that you can get malaria in the Dominican Republic and should get immunized. Anyone who had been there before do that? I went to Jamaica last summer. No immunization.

Best contact you Dr. but its always a good idea to keep up to date with Hep. and tetanus shots even when not travelling,some people take malaria medication (there is no vaccination for malaria) and others don't. You should discuss it with your doctor.
