    Some links that give suggestions on this. Looks like they recommend that you get them about 4-6 weeks in advance. But even if you can't, it's best that you get them nonetheless.

    I'd recommend the Hep shots, even if you aren't traveling.

    wwwn.cdc.gov/travel/destinationMexico.aspx

    (The bottom one is the CDC's website for mexico. You'll have to copy and paste since it has an "n" following the "www" (not a typo))

    Personally, we've never made a special trip to the doctor for shots prior to our trips. But we've had Hep shots previously because either our employment or school required them.

    EVERY year when I get back I have the plague! Takes a few weeks to get feeling normal after returning............... a week straight of partying and lack of sleep takes its toll on your body!
