About the vaccine

Boosters:The typhoid vaccine protects you for three years. After that, you will need a booster if you travel to a risk area.

How it is given:There are two different typhoid vaccines. One is an injection, the other consists of a course of tablets. Which vaccine is suitable for you depends on your age and medical history.

Side effects: You may experience temporary side effects such as fever, upset stomach and soreness at the injection site.

Children:The vaccine is suitable for children over the age of 2 years.

Treatment if you contract Typhoid:  Typhoid can be treated with antibiotics. If the infection is diagnosed early, you can usually be treated at home with tablets. People who develop complications need to be admitted to hospital.

FAQ

Typhoid fever is a severe infection which is spread mainly from eating food or drinking water that has been contaminated with the poo or pee from someone infected with typhoid.

The main symptoms of typhoid fever are:

  • A persistent high temperature that gradually increases each day
  • A headache
  • General aches and pains
  • Extreme tiredness 
  • A cough
  • Constipation

You can get the Typhoid vaccination particularly when travelling to a country where typhoid fever is common.

The best way to reduce your risk of becoming infected with typhoid during travel is by following:

  • Strict food and water precautions, including drinking safe water
  • Effective hand hygiene and personal hygiene measures

We provide the typhoid injection. It is suitable for children from the age of two and provides protection for three years. The vaccine consists of one single dose, which should be administered two weeks before entering a country with a high risk of typhoid. We also provide the oral vaccination in cases where the injection is not suitable.

We provide you with certificates for Yellow Fever and Meningitis ACWY vaccinations. We give administration records for the rest.
