Typhoid is practically unheard of in the UK, however, if you’re travelling to an area without constant access to clean water or an area with poor sewage systems you are at risk. It’s widely acknowledged that children are more susceptible to Typhoid as their immune systems are still developing.
To reduce your risk of contracting Typhoid we recommend vaccination before you travel. However, as no vaccination is 100% effective, it’s also important that you follow good hygiene practices while you’re abroad.
Vaccination against typhoid fever is recommended if you’re travelling to parts of the world where the condition is common. The most at-risk areas for typhoid include; the Indian subcontinent, Africa, south and southeast Asia and South America. Book your appointment online if you’re travelling to any of these areas.
See your doctor as soon as you can if develop symptoms of typhoid fever, particularly if you have recently returned from travelling abroad. In most cases it’s not typhoid, however, it’s always worth getting checked.
