Hajj and Umrah Vaccination

Hajj and umrah Regulations in Saudi Arabia

The Saudi Arabia Ministry of Health recommends that elderly (aged above 65) with chronic diseases (such as heart disease, kidney disease, respiratory illness, diabetes, etc.), malignancy and terminal illnesses, and immune deficiency (congenital and acquired); pregnant women; and children (aged below 12) postpone the performance of the Hajj and Umrah for their own safety.

The importance of getting vaccinated before your Umrah Pilgrimage

Every year, millions of devotees, including different age groups and genders, come from various parts of the world to Saudi Arabia to perform Hajj and Umrah. Meningococcal disease occurs in the form of epidemics in large gatherings as in Hajj and Umrah, and if you don’t take preventative methods, the chances of getting infected are high. Hence, the meningitis vaccination is a mandatory requirement for a Hajj/Umrah visa.
It’s highly recommended to get vaccinated at least two weeks before your travel and protect yourself and your family from infection. Unvaccinated people can be infected easily and spread it to other unvaccinated people as well, making the situation even worse. The best thing you can do is to be up-to-date on your routine vaccines to have the best protection against these types of illnesses.
Consult a specialist doctor if you have senior citizens, children, and companions with chronic health issues or specific health conditions, travelling with you. Also, keep a first aid kit, containing sterile gauze pads, adhesive tape, and antiseptic wipes, with you while going for the Umrah pilgrimage.
