Travellers’ Diarrhea Vaccine
Travellers’ diarrhea is discussed in more detail in our Prevention & Self-Treatment section.
There is an oral vaccine that offers some protection against travellers’ diarrhea but is not a substitute to our Food and Water Safety instructions and self-treatment.
- The information in this page is for educational purposes only. It is not to substitute for a formal travel consult with your travel doctor.
- If you have health insurance offered to you through work or school you may be covered for vaccines. At time of payment, we will provide you with an invoice (with the unique DIN for each vaccine) so you can claim your expenses back from your insurance company. This vaccine is not covered by OHIP for travel purposes.
- Always seek immediate medical advice if you get sick abroad or after you return.
- food and water safety should be always implemented even if you get vaccinated against Travellers’ Diarrhea.
