No need for malaria shots when coming to the Bahamas. I will add that the last couple of summers there were cases of Dengue fever reported here. Don;t know of a preventive vaccine for that as I'm not a medical expert on that. However, using mosquito spray should take care of that slight risk. Most of the cases (if not all) were with persons living in urban areas away from the resorts and tourist areas.

No, no malaria shots or therapy needed for the Bahamas. The only place there was ever any call for them was in Georgetown, Exuma where there were a few isolated cases some years ago from illegal immigrants, but I don't that is even in effect anymore.
