Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am going on a work trip tomorrow. I was vaccinated for typhoid six years ago and was informed today that I should have taken another typhoid vaccine. I read online that you should do this two to four weeks before traveling. Should I still try to get vaccinated? If so, can I take an oral booster pill, or should I go to a clinic to get vaccinated?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have read your details, and I can understand the problem. Taking a booster dose of typhoid is always safer before going to another country. I suggest you take precautions and drink filtered and boiled water. Do not eat the roadside food and eat only in good restaurants.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
