UAE’s Ministry of Health and Prevention, MoHAP, has recently launched the mobile vaccination e-clinic service to provide vaccines for children while they are in their parents’ vehicles.
This will prevent exposure for the children and their parents with no need to get out of the car and enter the health centres.
In a statement sent today, the MoHAP said the service is now available at most health promotion centres for children aged 4,6, 12 and 18 months.
To make an appointment, the parents need to contact the health centre and provide the necessary information. At the scheduled time, the medical team will receive the child and his parents at the center entrance for further assessment, and to get the child vaccinated while in the car.
In-car vaccinations were also introduced in Abu Dhabi last week by public health provider, the Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (Seha).
