Vapor barrier under laminate over crawlspace?


Heavy (12 mm) laminate with pad attached, going over plywood subfloor on ground floor, over a crawlspace. Thoughts on putting down a vapor barrier first? Optional or mandatory?

Ony time I'd use a vaper barrier is over a slab or below grade.
But it is really important to the whole house to have a vaper barrier on the ground!.
