Vivotif

Typhoid Vacc,Live,Attenuated

What is Vivotif used for?

This vaccine is used to help prevent infection (typhoid fever) caused by a certain bacteria (Salmonella typhi). People can get this infection by eating contaminated food or drinking contaminated water. This vaccine is recommended for people older than 6 years who are traveling to areas where typhoid fever is common (such as countries in Central and South America, Africa, Asia), who are exposed to someone with ongoing typhoid infection, or who work with the bacteria in a lab. Typhoid vaccine contains live bacteria that have been weakened. It works by causing the body to produce its own protection (antibodies) against the bacteria that cause typhoid fever.
