Going out of the country? Piog

Ok so I have an 8month old daughter, my only child. She's only had one vaccine at 2months, and after doing more research, my husband and I don't think we'll be giving her any more. I'm debating taking her on a trip to the Dominican Republic in Oct of this year (she'll be one in July). Would that be unwise with her being unvaccinated? I'm directing this question to the other moms of unvaccinated kids, and those that have taken their unvaxed kids out the country....

 

EDIT: just thought of something else! will i even be allowed to take her with out being vaxed? i used to work in a Dr's office, and i remember ppl coming in with forms they needed to prove they had certain vaccinces to leave the country...is it only certain countries? I've only been to Mexico, and i wasnt required to show anything...

I was in the Dominicanast year with my family. No vaccines and no illness. Only drink bottled water. That's the only concern. They aren't rampant with disease. Even if they were, a vaccine wouldn't help.
