Typhoid Polysaccharide Vaccine should be given intramuscularly in the deltoid and children should be injected intramuscularly either in the deltoid or the vastus lateralis. It should not be injected into the gluteal areas where there may be a nerve trunk.
Typhoid Polysaccharide Vaccine injection should be administered with caution to subjects with thrombocytopenia or bleeding disorders since bleeding may occur following an intramuscular administration to these subjects. Following injection, firm pressure should be applied to the site (without rubbing) for at least two minutes.
Typhoid vaccine can be co-administered with other vaccines but should not be mixed with other vaccines or medicinal products in the same syringe.
It may be expected that in patients receiving immunosuppressive treatment or patients with immunodeficiency, an adequate response may not be achieved. The administration of Typhoid vaccine should be postponed in subjects suffering from acute severe febrile illness.
Pregnancy & Lactation
Lactation: It is not known if Typhoid vaccine is excreted in human milk. It may be administered to nursing mothers only if clearly needed.
