What is Typhoid Polysaccharide Vaccine IP?

Typhoid Polysaccharide Vaccine IP stands as a crucial defense against typhoid fever, triggered by Salmonella Typhi. This vaccine, recommended for adults and children aged two and above, induces antibody production, effectively guarding against the disease.


Administration and Dosage

Healthcare professionals exclusively administer this vaccine, usually at least two weeks before anticipated exposure to typhoid fever. A single dose protects for approximately three years, although periodic booster shots may be necessary for individuals continually at risk.



The primary use of Typhoid Polysaccharide Vaccine IP is for the prevention of typhoid fever in individuals traveling to or residing in areas with a high prevalence of the disease. Additionally, it is employed in vaccination campaigns aimed at controlling outbreaks and in routine immunization programs to bolster community immunity against typhoid.


Side Effects

Common side effects of the vaccine include mild reactions at the injection site, such as pain, swelling, and redness. Should these effects persist or worsen, it is essential to inform healthcare providers for appropriate management.


Safety Precautions

Before vaccination, individuals should disclose any existing medical conditions to their healthcare providers. It is equally crucial to inform them about any medications being taken. Pregnant and breastfeeding individuals should seek advice from their doctor before receiving the vaccine to ensure optimal safety.


Immunity Development

Typhoid Polysaccharide Vaccine IP stimulates the body’s immune response by initiating a controlled infection, prompting the production of antibodies. This immune response fortifies the body’s defenses, providing robust protection against future encounters with typhoid bacteria.


Understanding Typhoid

Typhoid fever, prevalent in regions with inadequate sanitation, is transmitted through contaminated food and water. Symptoms include fever, abdominal discomfort, loss of appetite, weakness, rash, and gastrointestinal disturbances.
