Cholera​ Vaccines in Ash vale Pharmacy and Travel Clinic

What is Cholera?

Cholera, Cholera is an infection affecting the small intestine, and its root cause is the bacterium Vibrio cholerae. The pathogenic nature of the cholera bacteria is facilitated by one of its parasites, the CTX virus. This virus produces a toxin that triggers the symptoms associated with Cholera. Common manifestations include watery diarrhea, which, if not addressed promptly, can progress to dehydration and, in severe cases, may result in death. Early and proper treatment is crucial to mitigate the potentially life-threatening consequences of Cholera.

Vaccine Effectiveness

The Cholera vaccine is not entirely foolproof, necessitating supplementary precautions alongside vaccination. Additional measures to prevent Cholera encompass:

  1. Consuming safe water (including for tooth brushing).
  2. Employing safe water for food preparation, cooking, and making ice.
  3. Regularly washing hands with soap and safe water.
  4. Utilizing latrines for proper disposal of feces and refraining from defecating in any water source.

What causes Cholera?

Cholera typically manifests in countries with limited social development and is often contracted through the consumption of contaminated food or water. The onset of symptoms occurs within a range of 12 hours to 5 days after ingesting the contaminated substance. This delayed onset underscores the importance of understanding and addressing potential sources of contamination to prevent the spread of the infection.
