Well baby and Travel Vaccine Services

Vaccination is a safe and effective way to prevent disease and save lives – now more than ever. Today there are vaccines available to protect against at least 20 diseases, such as diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, influenza, and measles. In Kenya, the Immunization Schedule is given by the Division of Vaccines and Immunizations (DVI) in the Ministry of Health and is commonly known as KEPI (Kenya Expanded Programme on Immunization).

AAR Hospital provides additional private vaccines that may not necessarily be in the KEPI schedule including vaccinations required for travel regulations. Like all medicines, vaccines can have mild side effects, such as pain, tenderness, or redness at the site of injection. Our qualified nurses will educate you on how to manage anxiety and walk with you as the baby acquires them to understand, as some vaccines have very rare, but more serious, side effects.
