UAE Reminds Hajj Pilgrims with These Precautions

(WAM) The Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHaP) in the UAE has urged all pilgrims and the wider community to follow necessary health instructions and precautions needed before and during travel, and to take basic and optional vaccinations including Covid-19 vaccines before leaving to Saudi Arabia for Hajj.

The ministry also urged pilgrims, especially those suffering from chronic diseases, to visit health centres before traveling to Saudi Arabia to ensure they are able to perform Hajj and to take the required doses of Covid-19 vaccines according to the protocols approved by health authorities.

MoHaP also called on all pilgrims to adhere to all precautionary measures to avoid any health problems during Hajj, including the exposure to heat exhaustion and physical stress to minimise the chances of contracting some diseases and health problems. They were also urged to follow healthy diet.
