Assalaam aleikum, i am planning to have my birth here in Abu Dhabi in shah Allah, as my husband is working here, and it is difficult to go back to USA for having baby. In USA, vitamin k, and Hepatitis B are routinely given at birth. However, parents are not FORCED to vaccinate (although their Ob and Pediatrician will often relentlessly bully them and fear monger) but the point is no one HAS TO vaccinate. So, what is the procedure here in Abu Dhabi hospitals? Is the HAAD vaccine schedule merely recommendations, or are they mandatory? Also, i am aware most nurserys and schools require vaccines, but are religious and/or medical exemptions allowed? I am not here to argue vaxxed vs anti vaxxed, so your OPINIONS, or lambasting me for not wanting to vaccinate is not helpful. Thanks!
