  • Dengue
  • Vaccine Recommendations

My 10-year-old patient lives in New York City but spends every summer with family in Puerto Rico. How much time should a child spend in Puerto Rico to be considered a resident of an endemic area and eligible for vaccination?

CDC does not recommend Dengvaxia for non-residents of areas where dengue is endemic. If the child spends regular extended periods in Puerto Rico to point that they are considered a part-time resident, the family should consult with the child’s health care provider in Puerto Rico for assessment.
