Immunization Schedule


Immunization (or vaccination) is the use of vaccines to protect children against certain infectious diseases caused by bacteria and viruses. The vaccines are given to children when they are young because these diseases can strike at an early age.

The United Arab Emirates is free from vaccine-preventable diseases like poliomyelitis, diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (whooping cough) because of our successful immunization program.if your child is not vaccinated against the diseases, he may not have immunity and the following can happen:


Your child can contract the diseases easily from another person



Serious illnesses and even death may occur



He will spread the diseases to others (children and adults too) who are not immune. This may result in an epidemic if too many people are infected.
