Cholera Vaccine


What is it?

Cholera is spread through contaminated water and food. It is more common during floods and rainy seasons. Cholera symptoms include painless, watery diarrhoea that can quickly lead to severe dehydration and death if treatment is not received promptly. Vomiting also occurs in most patients.

Vaccination is recommended for those unable to take effective food and water precautions and those working in refugee camps or slums in outbreak areas. Cholera vaccine gives 85 – 90% protection against V. cholera 01.

  • Sub-Saharan Africa
