Malaria/travel vaccinations

Hi, I'm travelling to puerto plata on the 6th July for a 2wk holiday. My partner and his family and also my two children have all had the necessary vaccinations and will also be taking malaria tablets. I will be 27 weeks pregnant and am unable to have either. My children

Are so excited and I don't want to let them down but I am really scared of the risks? Please could you advise me on the most up to date risks of malaria are there? Thank you x

I would do a search of the DR forums - this is debated regularly.

The risk is very small. No anone I know resident in the country takes them.

The important thing is to take preventative measures against bites.

Thank you for your reply. I did have a look but it seemed the last comments were over a year ago. So thought I would get more up to date advice. We are staying in a fully air conditioned villa and I will use plenty of insect repellent and the wrist bands. I just wanted to see if it is bad over there now and if I'm putting myself at risk. X
