Advice for pilgrims for Hajj pilgrimage

The Public Health Agency advises that all pilgrims aged two years and older are required to show proof of vaccination against meningococcal meningitis ACW135Y for the purposes of Hajj.

This vaccine should have been received not more than three years and not less then ten days before arrival in Saudi Arabia, and should be recorded in a vaccination book showing the traveller’s full name.
