    Default Flu shots routinely available in the DR?

    Are seasonal flu shots routinely available in the DR in the fall?

    This will depend on your doctor. My regular doctors (endocrinologist and gynaecologist) have never ordered them. But when I did the VIP Plan at Cedimat they were recommended and available at Cedimat.

    In the states if you are over 65 you are advised to get the new stronger flu vaccine.

    Yes....they are available at vaccination centers of the government and at many doctors. The allergy doctor of my son offered them at RD$1500. (no thank you).

    I happened to be in the US visiting family so able to get the shot there. Otherwise I would gladly have paid RD$1500.

    I do not have a "regular" medico yet as I haven't needed one. I have met the local roadside witch doctor so I'll stop in and ask him how best to find the shot and when it is usually available. As I get older I'm all for doing what I can not to get sick.

    Has anybody noticed all the sniffling tourists that seem to show up here in the winter months carrying who knows what?

    Here is a Suggestion to all DR1ers who live in the DR, or spend a large part of their year here.
    GET A DOCTOR!!!
    Find a good Primary Care Doctor, BEFORE you need one, especially in an EMERGENCY!
    That way, they will KNOW who you are, your medical history, medications, and more about you.
    They can refer you to any specialists you may need.
    When you have chest pains at 3 am, its NOT the time to look for a good cardiologist!!!
    If you ALREADY have a cardiologist who knows you, he/she may be in the ER waiting for you when you get there.
    Otherwise you get to an ER, they go look for a doctor, wake them up, and you get doctor,¨FULANO De Tal",who will probably know as much about heart disease as you do, very possibly LESS!!!!
    Trust me on THIS ONE!!!!!!
