Protection against diarrhoeal diseases for modern day travellers

$261.23

(Consultation and oral vaccinations against Typhoid, ETEC and Cholera)

Traveller's diarrhoea is the commonest health problem facing travellers to less developed countries of the world where there is inadequate sanitation, poor hygiene, overcrowding and a lack of clean water and food. Infection occurs as a result of consumption of contaminated food and water. High risk foods include raw fruits and vegetables, raw or undercooked seafood and meat, and untreated water.

Between 30 and 50% of travellers will be affected in a 2-week overseas stay, with approximately 12% presenting after returning home. Travel to industrialised countries is not without risk, albeit low.

Symptoms include high fever, fatigue, stomach pains, loss of appetite, and in severe instances, death.

It is costly to the traveller, often resulting in inconvenience, time loss, disruption to schedules, morbidity, mortality, and potential adverse health sequela. A person who has contracted typhoid fever can become a carrier and spread the disease to others.

Traveller’s diarrhoea can be prevented readily by the administration of vaccinations against the causative pathogens:

(1) Salmonella Typhi

  • The bacteria that causes Typhoid

(2) Enterotoxigenic E. coli (ETEC)

  • The bacteria that is responsible for the most common cause for travellers’ diarrhoea.

(3) Vibrio cholerae

  • The bacteria that causes Cholera

Refer below for vaccination schedule.

Price is applicable for three doses of Typhiod oral vaccine, 2 doses of Cholera and ETEC oral vaccine, and includes practice cost and doctor’s consultation charge at first visit.

Available at Raffles Medical (Singapore) clinics at Raffles Hospital Level 2 and Changi Airport Terminal 3B2.
