Question: Cant get hold of oral Typhoid vaccinations in Australia.


 brianca - Sun Nov 07, 2004 5:24 am

Does anyone know if I can get sent oral Typhoid vaccination into Australia, as they stopped making it here 2yrs ago???
I need to get hold of it ASAP, as my 19yr old daughter cant take the injection due to a phobia, and we are going to Vietnam in December.
Would appreciate a response ASAP
Thanks
