COVID VACCINE BOOSTER Nov 22 Lovely, helpful, understanding staff I rang in to book my jab, shared I am autistic so they are aware of mg additional needs. Staff understood straight away and reassured me they would inform team, also offered me space whilst waiting in busy pharmacy. British Asian lady who administered the vaccine was very nice, talked slowly and calmly and made sure i was comfortable (closing door to lower noise levels due to my sensory issues). Vaccine was the easiest one ive had, really positive experience - worth the drive from Tring Thank you!

Went in just to collect mum's prescription and there was a guy outside showing people to where their Covid jabs should be. I asked the chief pharmacist if I could get a Covid and flu jab done but I don't live in the area and the chemist's near me have run out already and have no more appointments. He knows I'm a carer for my mum in the village and need to stay healthy after my father passed away last year and took my details and I'd had both done within a matter of minutes! This was above and beyond what they had to do.... many thanks 👍

Which vaccinations are required for Hajj & Umrah?

All those visiting Saudi Arabia for Hajj & Umrah or seasonal work are required to submit a certificate of vaccination with the Meningococcal quadrivalent ACWY vaccine. The certificate of vaccination must be issued no more than 3 years and no less than 10 days before arrival in Saudi Arabia. Book your Meningitis ACWY Vaccine online to avoid the last-minute rush.

Check on the Saudi embassy website or your airline or hajj organisers for the latest hajj rules and requirements.

What is meningitis?

Meningitis is a serious infection that affects the meninges, the protective barrier of the brain. If not treated promptly, it can cause serious damage to the brain nerves and cause fatal blood poisoning (sepsis).

Millions of pilgrims travel to Saudi for hajj each year from all parts of the world. During the 2000/01 Hajj season, there was a major outbreak of meningitis, therefore since 2002, the meningitis ACWY vaccination is mandatory for all pilgrims.

Meningitis ACWY Vaccine Certificate

When you get your meningitis ACWY vaccine at Edlesborough Pharmacy, we will provide you with a certificate of vaccine administration. This is required upon entry into Saudi Arabia from Hajj and Umrah Pilgrims or seasonal workers.

It is important that the details you provide match those on your passport.

We also offer a range of travel essentials such as mosquito repellents, flight socks, Diarrhoea relief, and rehydration therapies. Contact us today to book an appointment or visit us at the pharmacy. We look forward to seeing you.
