It is strongly recommended that you have your MMR vaccine before traveling to the Bahamas. While the vaccine will protect against many diseases and may weaken your immunity, it can still help you to stay healthy. This can be checked by your doctor. However, you should still get it. Tdap is another important vaccination. Tdap is a vaccine that protects against Diphtheria (Tetanus) and Pertussis. The Shim Clinic recommends that you get this booster once every 10 years.
Also, you should know that you must have a valid passport. Keep in mind that different countries have different passport validity requirements. It is best to have a passport valid for at most 6 months beyond your intended departure date. You do not need a visa to travel the Bahamas if your stay is less than 90 days. Your passport must be valid for at least 90 days.
