Vaxchora Vaccine

Cholera Vaccine, Live

What is Vaxchora Vaccine used for?

This vaccine is used to prevent cholera infection caused by a certain bacteria (V. cholerae). People can get infected by eating food or drinking water that has been contaminated. This vaccine is recommended for people who are traveling to areas where this infection is common. Cholera vaccine contains live bacteria that have been weakened. It works by causing the body to produce its own protection (antibodies) against the bacteria. Vaccines may not fully protect everyone who receives them. While traveling, you should still avoid contaminated food or water (such as by drinking only bottled or boiled water, eating only fully cooked food). Ask your health care professional for more details.
