This vaccine is used to help prevent typhoid fever. Vaccines work by increasing the body's natural defense (immunity) against the bacteria that cause the infection. This vaccine is recommended for people who are traveling to areas where the infection is common (such as Africa, Asia, Central/South America), those who are in close contact to someone with an ongoing typhoid infection, and those who work with the bacteria (Salmonella typhi) in a lab. This vaccine is used to prevent the disease and will not treat typhoid fever or an ongoing typhoid infection. View More Info
