First I would like to say hey to everyone, as this is my first post...
My question is about the health risk for Americans in CR? My mother is worried about my family and I going to CR so she called my sons pediatrician to ask about the health risk and the doctor said her that we all need to go to the health department to get shots for a number of things such a typhoid and malaria.
The health department told her that we should have gotten sots and taken pills a month ago and for us to come in ASAP to get started!
My wife is from CR so the lady at the health department said that she would not need to take any precautions because she already has built a resistance.
Is it really that serious of a risk? I am worried about my son and also about the doctor saying that we should have done this a month ago.
Thanks in advance for any help on this topic.
