Who should get the Cholera vaccine?

The cholera vaccine is recommended for travellers to areas with a high risk of cholera, especially those who will be staying for an extended period or who will be in close contact with locals. The vaccine is particularly important for those with weakened immune systems, such as people with HIV/AIDS or those undergoing chemotherapy. Pregnant women should consult with a healthcare provider before getting the vaccine.

What are the side effects of Cholera vaccines?

Like all vaccines, the cholera vaccine can cause side effects, although they are generally mild and go away on their own. Common side effects of the oral cholera vaccine include abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. Common side effects of the injectable cholera vaccine include soreness at the injection site, headache, and fever. Severe allergic reactions to the cholera vaccine are rare but can occur.
