UAE Health Authorities Enhance AlHosn App
Initially created as the UAE's official app for COVID-19 contact tracing and health testing, AlHosn has transformed into the country's primary digital healthcare platform for maintaining vaccination records.
MoHAP's latest update offers a suite of digital tools to empower families to efficiently track their children's vaccination status. Moreover, it guarantees users access to accurate and reliable information, thanks to collaborative efforts between MoHAP and local health authorities.

Dr. Hussain Al Rand, Assistant Undersecretary for Public Health at MoHAP, underscored that this update signifies a significant leap forward in the UAE's healthcare sector's smart transformation journey. It simplifies access to children's vaccination records in alignment with the National Immunization Programme.
The UAE government requires vaccinations for children from birth through Grade 11, encompassing immunizations against diseases such as tuberculosis, hepatitis B, polio, tetanus, and more.
Dr. Al Rand stressed the UAE government's commitment to leveraging smart technologies and applications to foster communication with the community, ensuring comprehensive healthcare coverage. He highlighted the pivotal role of vaccinations in safeguarding children's health and bolstering community immunity.
This initiative reflects the UAE's ongoing commitment to public health and leveraging digital solutions to enhance healthcare services. By integrating child vaccination records into the AlHosn app, parents and caregivers can easily access and track their children's immunization history, contributing to improved vaccination rates and overall community health.
