Citizens in Dubai will soon have their vaccination records stored as part of a unified system known as Hasana. The initiative, launched by Dubai Health Authority, will be rolled out during 2018 and provide access to unified immunization records at any facility in the emirate and will ensure availability of relevant data.

It also enables the authority to lay the foundation for the Population Health Management System, which aims to manage and contain the spread of communicable diseases in the country.

The immunization management system will have features such as immunization schedules and eligibility, immunization planning and management, adverse effects and mass immunization campaigns. It will also help in outbreak management including prevention, monitoring, management and analysis of outbreak cases.
