Immunization Card

If your baby is born in an Israeli hospital, you will immediately be given a Pinkas Hisunim - an immunization card.  Each time you child is vaccinated, it will be recorded on the card.  Make sure you keep this card in a safe place as your child will need it for future vaccination administered at school.

If your children were not born in Israel, they will be given an immunization card at their first visit to Tipat Halav. 

Influenza

The Ministry of Health also recommends that the public receive an annual vaccination against influenza.  The vaccine is administered via the Health Fund - Kupat Holim.  Ask your family doctor for details. 

Medical Tip

When sorting your documents prior to Aliyah, remember to bring all medical records with you and your child's vaccination record from abroad.
