Travel Vaccinations for Bahamas

The table below provides a general guide as to the Travel Vaccinations that may be advised to you for travel to Bahamas

A country of more than 700 islands, the Bahamas accounts for thousands of miles of shoreline, and an inexhaustible wealth of unsullied beaches to explore. From the bustling port of Nassau with its straw market, tour boats, and hoardes of cruise ship passengers to the crystal clear aquamarine waters and hidden cays of the Exuma Islands, you will never run out of favourites. Be sure to see Georgetown, Great Exuma or visit Exuma sound on the east and walk the ruins of great plantation houses.

Sail to Bimini for some of the world’s best sport fishing, or cross the bridge from Nassau to try your luck at the Paradise Island casino. Nearby, savour the sumptuous cuisine at legendary Café Martinique, featured in the Bond film Thunderball. Before you start packing, your first stop on your way to Bahamas should be a visit to our Travel Health Clinic, at least four to eight weeks before departure so that you will be completely safe and up-to-date with the Vaccinations you need for travel to the Bahamas.

Advice for Travellers to all Destinations

All Travellers should ensure that they are up-to-date with Routine Vaccinations including Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio and Measles, Mumps and Rubella.

Most Travellers

Most travellers will also need to consider a course or booster of Hepatitis A and Typhoid as there is a risk of these diseases across most parts of the world.

Some Travellers

Incredible service – so helpful
Excellent service! Chazile went above and beyond to prepare me for my travels to south east Asia. Very kind, sharp and added helpful bits of information that will be useful during my travels. Even created a vaccine booklet for me that I asked for to keep track of my vaccines for the future. Highly recommended The London Vaccination Clinic. Thanks again Chazile 🙂 Nick

Travel vacines

Attended a consultation for travel vacines, the nurse explained everything with care, provided good advice. We then add a follow up consultation with a different nurse for the vaccines and was also very kind and professional. Was very impressed, we did not feel pressured to have more vacines then reasonable and both nurses gave pricing information upfront.

Very positive experience

Really easy to book and the nurse who I saw in Liverpool Street was really kind and helpful. She went through my vaccination history, what I needed for my trip and explained everything I needed to know ahead of administrating the vaccine I needed.
I am glad I arrived early as the venue was tricky to find as the name of the building has changed so doesn’t match Google maps. Put me in a slight panic as I thought I was going to miss my appointment but I found it in the end!

My nurse was a beautiful soul inside…

My nurse was a beautiful soul inside and out. I have a fear of needles and she was so patient and reassuring from beginning to end. She asked me questions, helped me to relax and made me feel like an individual rather than just someone on the list for the day.

Further Travel Health Advice for Bahamas

Situated as they are in the Atlantic Ocean, the islands of the Bahamas are temperate with year-round breezes, but the sun is very strong, and a sun block with SPF 20 should be applied before visiting the beach or going snorkelling. Make a habit of carrying bottled water with you wherever you go, to stay hydrated. Alcohol will dehydrate you, so take care to limit your alcohol intake.

Tap water in the Bahamas is generally safe, but most visitors choose bottled water, which can be purchased anywhere. Remember to bring lots with you when touring, or lounging on the beach.

The major hotels in Nassau, Paradise Island, and on Grand Bahama serve all types of International cuisine, so to experience the true taste of Bahamian food, you will have to do a little hunting. Your efforts will be rewarded with your first taste of spicy conch chowder, a delicious blend of tomatoes, potatoes, sweet peppers, onions, salt pork, herbs and spices. Bahamian chefs fry up conch fritters, and cracked conch and marinate it in hot pepper sauce to make conch salad.

And you haven’t really tried Bahamian food until you have tasted grouper fingers, or steamed grouper with creole sauce. Fruits are the focus of some favourite desserts, like soursop ice cream or guava duff dessert, and papaya, or “paw-paw”, is made into chutney, or in its natural state with almost every meal. You may have heard of a Bahama Mama shake, also made from Papaya. Cocktails like the popular Goombay smash almost always feature fruit with rum.

If you need health care in the Bahamas, there are hospitals and good clinics on New Providence Island and Grand Bahama Island. In general the standard of care is very good, however, it is best to check with your hotel or resort before choosing a care facility. Arrange in advance to have plenty of money with you to pay for any health care you might need, since your own insurance may not cover these costs and most clinics require cash payment.

Protect yourself, and your family, with comprehensive travel health insurance which will cover your intended itinerary and any potentially risky activities, like parasailing or diving.

Aside from observing the normal precautions, such as not carrying large sums of money, visitors are generally safe in tourist areas.
