What is Cholera?
It is a bacterial disease of the small intestine that is contracted through contaminated food and/or water. It can be fatal if not treated quickly.
Dosage & Instructions
The vaccine is administrated as a single oral dose and should be administered at least 10 days prior to exposure.
Although immunization records are not mandatory, they are useful to help keep track of all immunizations one has received. You may get asked if you have proof of vaccination so its better to be safe and keep your records up to date.
The vaccine will effectively protect against Cholera for 30 days and offers short-term protection to people with exposure to the bacteria which can cause gastrointestinal problems, most notably severe diarrhea resulting in dehydration.
Travel vaccination; Not recommended for routine administration unless living in an endemic area or if you are visiting Africa and Asia – especially for an extended period of time.
