After a basic overview of typhoid, it is imperative to review preventive measures that you can take to protect you and your family. Let’s consider them below.


1. Get Vaccinated

• Vaccination is available at the local hospitals and clinics near you. 

• Please consider receiving the vaccination, which will drastically reduce the occurrence of typhoid.  

• Children under the age of 2 are not eligible for vaccination.


2. Be Water Conscious

• Since contaminated water and food continue to be one of the number one transmission methods for typhoid, being conscious of water sources is imperative.  

• Try to consume bottled water unless you are certain the water is clean.

• Boil water before drinking to kill any bacteria present in the water.  

• Avoid raw or uncooked fruits and vegetables unless washed with clean water.  

• Avoid food and drinks from street vendors.  

• Do not ask for ice in your water.  


3. Proper Hand Hygiene

• Hand washing is vital for the general population, but if you are in the foodservice industry or prepare food for your family daily, vigorously wash your hands.

• Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water to practice positive hand hygiene.
