Typhivax 0.25 mcg Injection

Prescription Required

Overview

Introduction of Typhivax Injection

Typhivax 0.25 mcg Injection is indicated for active immunization for the prevention of typhoid fever caused by S typhi and is approved for use in persons two years of age or older. Immunization should occur at least two weeks prior to expected exposure to S typhi.

Typhivax 0.25 mcg Injection is recommended for travelers to areas where a recognized risk of exposure to typhoid exists, particularly ones who will have prolonged exposure to potentially contaminated food and water and persons with intimate exposure (ie, continued household contact) to a documented typhoid carrier and workers in microbiology laboratories who frequently work with the bacteria.

Typhivax 0.25 mcg Injection provides protection against the risk of infection related to Salmonella typhi, but gives no protection against Salmonella paratyphi A or B, non-S typhi species of Salmonella enterica serovar Typhi, or other bacteria that cause enteric disease. Protection lasts for around 3 years. Booster injection is required every 3 years to provide continued immunity.
