Typhoid fever is a quite common clinical condition in Pakistan due to poor hygiene and sanitation conditions. The food handling is not good and generally, the public is unsure about the food quality. Once you are infected with this microorganism, you may acquire a specific clinical symptom. It is very difficult to diagnose with certainty this condition. There is also little help for the blood or stool tests because the tests are not very specific and with many limitations in the interpretation of results.
Fortunately, there is a vaccine available to protect yourself and family from the serious clinical condition. In the past, the old-fashioned vaccine was less effective, of shorter duration protection and with side effects.
Fortunately, now new vaccines are available with better protection and fewer side effects. the vaccine is not only for children but there are many vaccines for adult population to provide a broad spectrum of protection from Hepatitis A & B to Typhoid, Tetanus, yellow fever, chicken pox, viral influenza, pneumonia and meningitis (garden toor bukhar).
