Centres located in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain to help families keep up-to-date with routine vaccinations

Abu Dhabi launches drive-through vaccination centres for children

Worried that your little ones next set of vaccinations are due, but equally concerned about taking them to a hospital or clinic to get them done? You are not alone.

To combat these fears, which many parents across the capital have, Abu Dhabi has launched a drive-through vaccination scheme for children for routine vaccine and immunisation updates.

In order to ensure that inoculation schedules are kept up to date in the current situation, several healthcare centres across Abu Dhabi and Al Ain are now offering to carry out the vaccinations without anyone even having to get out of the car.

However, parents will need to make an appointment for the service by calling 80050.

All vaccinations that fall under the National Immunisation Programme can be carried out at the drive-through facilities, with the exception of the two-month injections as these require a physical examination by a doctor.

But to reassure parents of infants who need their two-month jabs, the authorities have redesigned the patient flow so that the vaccination room is close to the entrance of the medical centres.

Here are the centres currently offering the drive-thru vaccination services:
Abu Dhabi: Al Bateen, Zafaranah Diagnostic and Screening Centre, Mushrif Children’s Specialty Centre, Madinat Mohamed bin Zayed, Madinat Khalifa, Baniyas, Al Bahia, Al Falah, and Al Samha.

Al Ain: Oud Al Touba Diagnostic & Screening Centre, Al Hili, Mezyad, Neima, Al Jahili, Al Yahar, Al Qua, Al Muwaiji, Al Towayya Children's Specialty Centre, and Al Hayer.
