(oral typhoid) Vaccine
- Patient Information:
Details with Side Effects
Vivotif Oral is an oral, live, attenuated typhoid vaccine for active immunization against typhoid and contains Salmonella typhistrain Ty21a. Each enteric coated capsule contains not fewer than 2 x 109viable organisms.
What are the possible side effects of typhoid vaccine (Vivotif Berna)?
You should not receive a booster dose if you had a life-threatening allergic reaction after taking a typhoid vaccine capsule.
Becoming infected with typhoid is much more dangerous to your health than receiving the vaccine to protect against it. Like any medicine, this vaccine can cause side effects, but the risk of serious side effects is extremely low.
Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.
