A meningococcal (ACWY) vaccination is a mandatory visa requirement for those attending Hajj and for those performing Umrah.
We have created a network of UK travel pharmacies to help pilgrims make an informed decision about where to get vaccinated. To find your local service along with the price, use our Clinic Finder.

What do I need to do now?
Book an appointment now for your meningococcal (ACWY) vaccination at your nearest travel pharmacy vaccination clinic. You will have a choice of venues but please ensure you book your appointment as soon as possible in order to secure your venue of choice. Many pharmacies offer a same day walk-in service.
Visits to the sacred sites involve physical exertion, exposure to extreme heat and potential for contracting infection. Good preparation requires mental and physical fitness before, during and after pilgrimage.
Mass gatherings hold their own health risks including the danger of stampedes. To reduce such risks ensure you follow instructions when moving in large groups from one place to another.
On your return from Hajj or Umrah, visit your pharmacist, GP or practice nurse if you experience:
• Persistent/productive cough lasting more than 3 weeks
• Fever or night sweats
• Diarrhoea or blood in your stools
• Jaundice (yellow eyes or skin)
