Typhoid occurs in Africa, Central and South America, the Middle East and India and causes a range of symptoms including high fever, constipation and diarrhoea. The vaccination injection for typhoid should be taken at least a week before travel.
Children and younger adults are thought to be most at risk of developing typhoid fever. This may be because their immune system (the body’s natural defence against infection and illness) is still developing.
Typhoid fever is uncommon in England, with an estimated 350 cases occurring each year. Most of these people are thought to have developed the infection while visiting relatives in Bangladesh, India and Pakistan.
