What is typhoid?
Typhoid (typhoid fever) is a serious disease. It is caused by bacteria called Salmonella Typhi.
Typhoid causes a high fever, fatigue, weakness, stomach pains, headache, loss of appetite, and sometimes a rash. If it is not treated, it can kill up to 30% of people who get it.
Some people who get typhoid become “carriers,” who can spread the disease to others.
Generally, people get typhoid from contaminated food or water. Typhoid is rare in the U.S., and most U.S. citizens who get the disease get it while traveling. Typhoid strikes about 21 million people a year around the world and kills about 200,000.
Typhoid vaccines
Typhoid vaccine can prevent typhoid.
There are two vaccines to prevent typhoid.
  • One is an inactivated (killed) vaccine gotten as a shot.
  • The other is a live, attenuated (weakened) vaccine which is taken orally (by mouth).
Who should get typhoid vaccine and when?
Routine typhoid vaccination is not recommended in the United States, but typhoid vaccine is recommended for:
  • Travelers to parts of the world where typhoid is common. (NOTE: typhoid vaccine is not 100% effective and is not a substitute for being careful about what you eat or drink).
  • People in close contact with a typhoid carrier.
  • Laboratory workers who work with Salmonella Typhi bacteria.
Inactivated typhoid vaccine (shot)
  • One dose provides protection. It should be given at least 2 weeks before travel to allow the vaccine time to work.
  • A booster dose is needed every 2 years for people who remain at risk.
Live typhoid vaccine (oral)
  • Four doses: one capsule every other day for a week (day 1, day 3, day 5, and day 7). The last dose should be given at least 1 week before travel to allow the vaccine time to work.
  • Swallow each dose about an hour before a meal with a cold or lukewarm drink. Do not chew the capsule.
  • A booster dose is needed every 5 years for people who remain at risk.
  • Either vaccine may safely be given at the same time as other vaccines.
Some people should not get typhoid vaccine or should wait.
Inactivated typhoid vaccine (shot)
  • Should not be given to children younger than 2 years of age.
  • Anyone who has had a severe reaction to a previous dose of this vaccine should not get another dose.
  • Anyone who has a severe allergy to any component of this vaccine should not get it. Tell your doctor if you have any severe allergies.
  • Anyone who is moderately or severely ill at the time the shot is scheduled should usually wait until they recover before getting the vaccine.
Live typhoid vaccine (oral)
  • Should not be given to children younger than 6 years of age.
  • Anyone who has had a severe reaction to a previous dose of this vaccine should not get another dose.
  • Anyone who has a severe allergy to any component of this vaccine should not get it. Tell your doctor if you have any severe allergies.
