Why is the typhoid vaccine so often recommended for travelers?
The typhoid vaccine is recommended for nearly every part of the developing world, including most tropical and many sub-tropical locations, because the disease is easily transmitted through contaminated water and food. Anywhere you go, if you want to eat or drink while there-you are at risk if there is active typhoid transmission in the area. Things that can increase the risk of typhoid transmission include poor sanitation and water contamination. Unfortunately, most of the developing world lacks the sewer and water systems you may be accustomed to in the United States. Additionally, the people preparing your food may be infected with typhoid without knowing it. Typhoid is treatable, but an estimated 128,000 to 161,000 die from typhoid every year. We do provide the typhoid vaccine at Away Clinic and we can advise you on whether you need it and what the risk level is for your trip. We also offer yellow fever, Japanese encephalitis and any other vaccines you may need for where you're traveling to. Read more about typhoid.
