Introduction to Vac Typh Injection

Vac-typh injection contains active components called as purified Vi capsular polysaccharide of Salmonella typhi (Ty 2 strain). It is a preventive measure used to protect against typhoid fever, a bacterial infection caused by Salmonella Typhi. Typhoid fever is typically contracted by consuming contaminated food or water. Vaccinated individuals are less likely to become infected with S. Typhi, which can help reduce the transmission of the bacteria within communities and prevent outbreaks.

If you have a severe allergic reaction to any component of the Vac typh injection (e.g., a previous dose of the vaccine or any of its ingredients), you should not receive the vaccine. Vaccination may be contraindicated if you have experienced a severe allergic reaction or other serious side effects following a previous dose of a Vac typh injection. While Vac typh injections are generally considered safe during pregnancy, they should be used cautiously, especially during the first trimester.

If you have received a blood or plasma transfusion, waiting for some time before getting the Vac typh injection is recommended. Vac typh injections are generally safe for older adults. However, the specific vaccine and its administration route may vary based on age. Consult with a healthcare provider to determine your child's appropriate vaccine typh and schedule.
