Do you need a typhoid vaccination?

If you are going away to a country in an area of poor sanitation where you are likely to be exposed to typhoid, you should speak to your pharmacist about getting vaccinated. They can give you a consultation and administer the vaccination. The typhoid vaccination comes in two forms: a single injection or a course of capsules to be take every other day for three doses.

It is a private (paid for) service available to non-pregnant adults and children over 2 (injection) or 5 years old (capsules). You may be eligible for a free vaccine on the NHS through your GP practice.

“When untreated, typhoid is an extremely dangerous illness. Although it is rare in the UK, it is important to be vaccinated and take precautions to avoid it when travelling in zones where it is prevalent.”
