Appointments are required and can be made by contacting the following number:
- On arrival at the front desk, you will be asked to show your Emirates ID and Al Hosn application on your mobile phone (this is mandatory and is to ensure that you have not participated in a prior trial of the vaccine).
- Our front desk staff will welcome you, register your details and direct you to the waiting area.
- One of the clinicians will call you and check your blood pressure, pulse, temperature and your vital signs. They will also start the relevant documentation in your medical records.
A new entry, specific to the Covid-19 vaccination, will be created and kept on file for your convenience.
- You will then receive a consent form (two copies). You will keep one copy while the other will be stored in your medical records.
- You will then be called to see the clinician who will assess your medical history and perform any relevant examination needed. Please be aware that the Covid-19 vaccine is not suitable for all patients and some health conditions may prevent you from having it.
Once your assessment is completed, the clinician will prescribe the Covid-19 vaccine for you and ask you to go back to the waiting area.
- If you are a married female below 50 years of age, you will receive a urine dipstick test kit to complete a pregnancy test, after which a clinician will interpret/validate the result before proceeding with the vaccination.
- The clinician will call you again and administer the vaccine via an intramuscular injection.
- Before leaving the hospital, you will need to report back to the front desk; there, our staff will book your appointment for the second dose of the vaccine.
