TYPHOID

Young Parents (Singapore) - - New Series -

The vac­cine, which can be given as an in­jec­tion or orally, pro­tects you from a nasty di­ar­rhoea-caus­ing bug called Sal­mo­nella Typhi that lurks out­side Sin­ga­pore’s bor­ders. It only of­fers around 70 per cent pro­tec­tion, though, and you’ll need to top it up ev­ery two to five years, says Dr Leong.
