Typhoid Vaccine Oral

Typhoid Fever Vaccine / Oral Typhoid Pills

If you will be traveling abroad, particularly to developing countries, and you need travel vaccines, come to Statcare Urgent Care in Hicksville, Long Island; Astoria, Queens; Brooklyn, NYC; the Bronx at Bartow Avenue (Co-op City); and the Bronx at E. 174th Street.

We offer the oral typhoid fever vaccine for those who are planning international travel. Our travel clinic vaccines and immunizations are easy to get and very affordable.  The oral vaccine is better and lasts 5 years and we keep it in stock at all locations.  The oral Typhoid Vaccine also prevents the bacteria that cause Typhoid from entering your blood stream by blocking them at the intestinal surface itself.  The injectable typhoid vaccine however does not have these advantages and the protection from an injectable vaccine lasts only two years.  For these reasons, Statcare does not keep the injectable vaccine in stock.

Come to Statcare for all your emergent care, urgent care, and medical needs, including physicals and vaccinations.

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 (855) 9 FOR DOC 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.

Typhoid fever is common in most parts of the world except in highly developed, industrialized areas such as the United States, Canada, western Europe, Australia, and Japan. If you are traveling to any developing or impoverished country where exposure to contaminated food or water is likely, you might be at risk for developing typhoid fever.

Typhoid fever is more common in areas of the world where handwashing is less frequent and water is likely to be contaminated with sewage.

You may get typhoid fever by eating food or drinking beverages that have been handled by a person who is shedding Salmonella typhi. You can also get it by drinking water that has been contaminated by sewage or eating food that has been washed with contaminated sewage water.

If you are traveling to a country in which typhoid fever is common, you should get a typhoid fever vaccine and be extremely careful about what you eat and drink. A good rule of thumb is to “boil it, cook it, peel it, or forget it.”

  • If you drink water, drink only bottled water or water that has been boiled for one minute.
  • Ask for drinks without ice and avoid popsicles and flavored ices (they may have been made with contaminated water).
  • Only eat foods that have been thoroughly cooked and that are still hot and steaming.
  • Do not eat raw vegetables or fruits that cannot be peeled. Lettuce is hard to wash well and is especially vulnerable to contamination.
  • Avoid foods and beverages from street vendors.
