Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query.

I have gone through and understand your concern.
According to CDC (Centre for disease control) the following vaccines are mandatory if you need to travel to Saudi Arabia: measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis vaccine, varicella (chickenpox) vaccine, polio vaccine, and your yearly flu shot.

The following are optional but recommended because of water and food you consume there: Hepatitis A and Typhoid vaccine.

The following are optional but good to be taken: Hepatitis B, malaria, meningococcal, yellow fever, rabies vaccines.

I hope that I have been able to answer your question.
