Typhoid Vaccine Oral
Typhoid Fever Vaccine / Oral Typhoid Pills
If you will be traveling abroad, particularly to developing countries, the Centers for disease control and prevention (CDC) recommends adults and children to take travel vaccines a week before travel. You can take typhoid vaccines at Statcare Urgent Care which has locations in Hicksville, Long Island; Astoria and Jackson Heights (Queens); Brooklyn, Midtown Manhattan (NYC); and the Bronx (Bartow Avenue Mall in Co-op City and 174th Street). This vaccine will fully protect you from getting this diarrheal disease which usually also leads to a chronic typhoid carrier state. Side effects and allergic reactions with the oral typhoid vaccine are very uncommon.
Statcare offers the oral typhoid fever vaccine as well as the injectable vaccine. Our CDC Certified travel clinic vaccines and immunizations are easy to get and very affordable. Check out our prices for Typhoid vaccines. Statcare’s travel experts strongly feel that the oral vaccine is better and protection from typhoid disease lasts 5 years so all Statcare locations have this vaccine in stock at all times. The way the oral Typhoid Vaccine works is it prevents the bacteria that cause Typhoid (Salmonella typhi) from entering the bloodstream by blocking them at the intestinal surface itself. The injectable typhoid vaccine however does not have this advantage. The antibody protection from an injectable vaccine lasts only two years versus the 5-year protection that an oral typhoid vaccine imparts. For children and adults who cannot swallow the oral vaccine, Statcare obtains the injectable vaccine on demand.
We are open 365 days a year, including weekends and all holidays!
Statcare serves the Long Island residents of Nassau County, Suffolk County, Queens, and Brooklyn, as well as the Bronx in NYC. If you have any questions about any conditions we treat or services we offer, call (917) 310-3371 today.
Typhoid Vaccine FAQs
Typhoid fever is a serious disease caused by the Salmonella typhi bacteria, which lives only in humans. Infected persons carry the bacteria in their bloodstream and intestinal tract. Symptoms include a high fever, fatigue, weakness, stomach pains, headache, loss of appetite, and sometimes a rash. If not treated, typhoid fever can be fatal.
