We are required to have Yellow Fever vaccinations for our cruise in December. I find it strange since we didn't the first time we sailed to Trinidad, but this time we go to Tobago. Devil's Island also requires it. We have to wait to get more people that need the vaccination to get it. The nurse told me they have to purchase a vial with 5 shots in it. The shots have to be used within 1 hour of opening the vial and they can't throw away 3 shots because it is too expensive. I guess we might have to travel to Birmingham or Nashville to get one, maybe even Atlanta.
Not sure how far that trip is for you but it may be cheaper/easier to just pay for the unused vaccines and get it done nearby.
