Cholera​ Vaccines in Ash vale Pharmacy and Travel Clinic

About Typhoid

Typhoid fever is a highly contagious bacterial infection with the potential to spread throughout the body, affecting various organs and causing severe complications that, if not promptly treated, can be fatal. The culprit behind typhoid fever is the bacterium Salmonella typhi, closely related to the bacteria responsible for salmonella food poisoning.

This infectious disease is most prevalent in regions with inadequate sanitation and limited access to clean water. The primary mode of transmission is through the consumption of food or drink contaminated with a small quantity of infected feces or urine.

Typhoid fever is commonly contracted during visits to countries with poor sanitation, such as Bangladesh, India, and Pakistan. Travel to Asia, Africa, or South America also poses a risk of infection. While typhoid fever is uncommon in the UK, children face a higher risk due to their underdeveloped immune systems. Notably, their symptoms are typically milder compared to those in adults.
