Child Vaccination in Jeddah, Ksa

Posted in Saudi Arabia forum

Hello Everyone,

Hope you will be doing well.

Please if anybody has information and knowledge about the procedure for regular child vaccination in Saudi Arabia. I am an Indian staying in Salamah Jeddah with family. We are seeking vaccination to be done for our daughter 4.5 years of age currently but facing a problem of her complete vaccination as it is not available in most of private hospitals. They advise this vaccination is available in saudi medical health center which are located in each district.

If somebody have gone through already about the procedure and documentation in saudi medical health center for vaccination, kindly share it. The previous vaccination of our daughter done in India and the vaccination card is in Hindi language only. I would like to know which documents are needed to continue further vaccination from saudi medical center.

Thanks a lot.

Warm Regards,
V. Mamgai

    I understand that your worries as I too was in a similar situation when I joined my hubby in Riyadh. There is no cause for concern as you can get you child vaccinated in Saudi Health Center, Just make an appointment and the doctors there will surely guide you.

    As a foreigner u may get free vaccination for ur child in saudi health center in Salamah dsct. But first of all u have to translate legally vaccination book to arabic and stamp it. otherwise they will refuse to give u a shot. Then make an appointment in the health center.

    You wont be allowed in government vaccination centres as far as I know bening a foreigner. If you have insurance of your child go to any good hospital like Saudi German or GNP for vaccination. Also download vaccination application of MoH developed by saudi health ministry from Android market. Search for CHILDREN VACCINATION MOH KSA.
