We're moving to Uganda and trying to decide which vaxes to get...does anyone know anything about the injectible typhoid vax? My sister in law, who is from Kenya and lives there now - doesn't vax her 3 year old son adn said there are tests for typhoid and it's treatable, she didn't think I should get them.
From what I've read, the vax is only like 55% effective. DD is 3.5 and DS is 4 months, so the vax would only be for DD and possibly DH and myself. I had the oral typhoid vax years ago before i started questioning vaxes, but it's a live virus vax for 6 years and up and I wouldn't get that vax for me or DH because of the risk of passing typhoid on to our kids.
