The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has immunization guidelines that comes in handy for travellers who are looking for health advisories before booking their holidays.

Health experts with the DHA say travellers can be exposed to parasitic, bacterial and viral diseases when heading to exotic destinations and travellers should give themselves enough time to be vaccinated before flying.

Diseases that people can be exposed to includes Yellow fever, Typhoid, Hepatitis A and B, along with Meningitis. Traveller’s clinics at government medical centres, such as the ones in Al Barsha and Nad Al Hammar, allow people to get the required vaccinations before they fly.

The clinics follow protocols set by the US-based Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and are certified by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as yellow fever immunisation providers in Dubai.
