Dominica, also known as the "Nature Island," is a hidden gem in the Caribbean that offers a unique and authentic travel experience for those seeking adventure and natural beauty. With its lush rainforests, pristine beaches, and volcanic hot springs, Dominica is a paradise for hikers, divers, and nature enthusiasts. The island is also home to a vibrant Creole culture and delicious cuisine, making it a perfect destination for those looking to immerse themselves in local traditions. While Dominica may not have the glitz and glamour of other Caribbean destinations, its unspoiled beauty and laid-back vibe make it a must-visit for travelers seeking an off-the-beaten-path adventure.
Dominica Immunization Recommendations and Requirements
Before traveling, make sure you are up-to-date on all of your routine immunizations including influenza and COVID-19. Note that many vaccines that are now considered "routine" were not available until recent decades so you may not have received them at all, depending on your age and other factors.
Infants, 6 to 11 months old should receive one dose of MMR and Hepatitis A prior to visiting Dominica. This does not count toward routine childhood immunizations.
