How effective are cholera vaccines, and how long do they provide protection?

Cholera vaccines are highly effective in preventing cholera, with studies showing up to 90% efficacy. The protection provided by the vaccines can last for up to two years, depending on the type of vaccine used. The vaccines are available in both oral and injectable forms, and both types are effective at preventing cholera.

What are the risks of not getting vaccinated against cholera?

Travelers who are not vaccinated against cholera are at an increased risk of contracting the disease and spreading it to others. Cholera can spread quickly in areas with poor sanitation and limited access to clean water, leading to outbreaks that can affect large populations. Not getting vaccinated against cholera can also lead to severe illness and even death, especially in individuals with weakened immune systems.
