Welcome to the Children’s Vaccination Clinic at Emirates Hospitals Group, where we are dedicated to safeguarding children’s health in the UAE through essential vaccinations. Vaccinations play a crucial role in preventing serious diseases and ensuring a healthy future for your child. Our clinic offers a comprehensive range of vaccines recommended by international health authorities and tailored to meet local health guidelines.

What is Vaccination?

Vaccination is a preventive healthcare measure that involves administering vaccines to stimulate the immune system against specific diseases. Vaccines contain weakened or inactive parts of a germ (bacteria or virus) that causes the disease. When administered, vaccines prompt the immune system to recognize and fight the germ if the body encounters it in the future, thus preventing infection or reducing its severity.

Importance of Vaccinations

Vaccinations are crucial for several reasons:

  • Disease Prevention: Vaccinations protect individuals and communities from contagious diseases such as measles, polio, influenza, and COVID-19.
  • Reduced Severity: Even if vaccinated individuals contract a disease, vaccines can reduce the severity of symptoms and complications.
  • Herd Immunity: Vaccinations help achieve herd immunity, where a large portion of the population is immune, reducing the spread of diseases and protecting vulnerable individuals who cannot be vaccinated due to medical reasons.
  • Public Health Impact: Vaccinations have led to the eradication of diseases like smallpox and the near-elimination of others, significantly improving public health worldwide.

List of Common Vaccinations

The following is a list of common vaccinations recommended for children and adults:

  • Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR): Protects against measles, mumps, and rubella.
  • Diphtheria, Tetanus, and Pertussis (DTaP/Tdap): Prevents diphtheria, tetanus (lockjaw), and pertussis (whooping cough).
  • Polio Vaccine: Guards against polio, a highly contagious viral infection affecting the nervous system.
  • Hepatitis B Vaccine: Prevents hepatitis B, a liver infection caused by the hepatitis B virus.
  • Hib Vaccine: Protects against Haemophilus influenzae type b, a bacterial infection that can cause severe illness in young children.
  • Varicella (Chickenpox) Vaccine: Prevents chickenpox, a contagious disease characterized by itchy blisters.
  • Pneumococcal Vaccine: Guards against pneumococcal disease, including pneumonia and meningitis caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae bacteria.
  • Rotavirus Vaccine: Prevents rotavirus infection, a leading cause of severe diarrhea in infants and young children.
  • Influenza Vaccine: Protects against seasonal influenza viruses.
  • COVID-19 Vaccine: Guards against COVID-19, caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

It’s essential to follow recommended vaccination schedules to ensure maximum protection against these and other preventable diseases.

Vaccination Schedule by Age

Children in the UAE follow a vaccination schedule recommended by the Ministry of Health and Prevention. Vaccinations typically start soon after birth and continue through childhood to protect against diseases such as measles, polio, hepatitis, and more. Our healthcare professionals will guide you through the recommended vaccination schedule based on your child’s age and individual health needs.
