Meningitis ACWY Vaccination

Meningitis ACWY Vaccination

Meningitis ACWY vaccination has been a compulsory entry requirement into Saudi Arabia for pilgrims on Hajj and Umrah, and for other travellers in Hajj season since 2002.   It protects against meningitis and septicaemia caused by four different strains: A, C, W and Y.  Vaccination is also recommended for travel to sub-Saharan Africa and certain other countries, especially if travellers will be living or working with local people or visiting during an outbreak.  An up-to-date list of countries with potential risk can be obtained from

It is recommended that all pilgrims on Hajj or Umrah regardless of age be vaccinated with ACWY.  Pilgrims on Hajj or Umrah aged 2 and above are required to present a certificate of vaccination with ACWY before they can gain entry into Saudi Arabia.  The certificate must have been issued at least 10 days before arrival. This also applies to seasonal workers in Hajj areas.


We provide a meningitis ACWY vaccination service which includes the provision of a vaccination certificate.
