Welcome to this typhoid vaccine course which is part of the ‘Health Academy Short Course’ series that provides clinicians with specific information relating to the full range of vaccines available in the UK.

So who is this typhoid vaccine short course suitable for?

This course is suitable for any experienced vaccinators who’s role will involve administering typhoid containing vaccines. This could include immunisation nurses, practice nurses, pharmacists or any healthcare professional, or healthcare support worker administering vaccines.

What have we included in this short course?

We have designed the vaccine short courses to cover all the key information for understanding the fundamentals of the disease, and the available vaccines. This course includes both injectable and oral typhoid vaccines. You should complete the course in approximately 60 minutes.

Course content:

  • Introduction to food and water borne diseases
  • The 5 Ts of Typhoid: Type – Type of organism and type of disease, Transmission route – How does the traveller become infected, Treatment & prevention – What treatments and preventative measures are available pre and post infection, Traveller’s Risk – What factors increase a traveller’s risk & Take home message – Key message for the traveller
  • Typhoid Vaccines

So what’s not included?

Please note: This is a stand alone ‘Typhoid Course’.

Therefore this is not a Foundations of Immunisation Course for those new to immunising or an Annual Immunisation Update Course.

Basic Life support and Anaphylaxis are also available in separate courses.

Other considerations

We also recommend completing a comprehensive Fundamentals of Travel Health course if you are going to be delivering a travel health service. This is in line with Good Practice Guidance for Providing a Travel Health Service (RGPSG, 2020).

Further travel health related short courses are also available here.
