The meningococcal (ACWY) vaccine is a health requirement for individuals performing Hajj, a pilgrimage to Mecca which able-bodied Muslims are expected to undertake at least once in their lives.
This vaccine must be given no more than three years before travel and no less than 10 days before you are planning to arrive in Saudi Arabia.
Hajj will take place once each year and as the vaccination is required before travel paperwork can be completed, we are urging people to prepare early. If you require a vaccination, call us now on 020 8946 0414 for any advice or to arrange a suitable time to be vaccinated. Alternatively, you can visit any of our branches at your convenience. There is no need for an appointment.
Action Travel clinic (D Parry Pharmacy) also offers a Ramadan Medicines Use Review to Muslims who take prescription medicines and are fasting during Ramadan. Our specialist Pharmacists and prescribers can also support those who are looking to stop smoking, through our Stop Smoking Service.
*Cost per person per dose. Our Hajj and Umrah Vaccination Service includes the conjugated meningococcal ACWY vaccination, administration and a certificate.
Malaria medication is not usually recommended for Saudi Arabia, but mosquito bite avoidance advice, and general travel health recommendations is given to help you prepare for your Hajj or Umrah.
