Countries At Risk

Due to the way in which the disease is spread, typhoid is mainly found in countries where sanitation levels are poor and there is a limited supply to clean water. The disease is widespread in much of the world including Africa, South East Asia, Central Asia and Central & South America.

Travel Precautions

Only drink from a sealed water bottle or boiled water. Avoid ice and salad that has been washed with tap water. Only eat fruit that can be peeled and avoid uncooked food. Ensure that food is freshly cooked and piping hot.

Signs & Symptoms

The most common symptoms of typhoid include a high fever, stomach pain, headache and constipation or diarrhoea. If the symptoms are not treated there is a possibility for the them to become worse and lead to the a higher risk of the disease being fatal.

The Vaccination

Travellers travelling to at risk countries are advised to receive a typhoid vaccination. The vaccination can either be given orally (a course of 3 capsules) or an injection. The oral typhoid vaccination is approximately 80% the effectiveness of the injection and is advised for people who are unable to receive the injection. The typhoid injection is effective for up to 3 years.
