Do you need a cholera vaccination?

Even in at-risk areas, the risk to travellers is still quite small. The vaccine is only recommended to those going to work in an area of a known cholera outbreak such as aid workers, or those planning to stay for a long time, especially if there will be limited access to medical care.

The cholera vaccine is given as a powder in a sachet, dissolved in water to drink. Children aged 2-6 will need three doses whereas those over 6 will only need two. This is a private service from your pharmacist but you may be eligible for a free vaccination on the NHS from your GP.

"Cholera affects millions of people worldwide each year. However, the risk to travellers remains low even in high-risk areas so there are only a few groups like aid workers and those living and working in cholera outbreak areas for whom the vaccine is necessary."
