Their efficiency is 30 to 70% for the first two years depending upon the particular vaccine in question.

Intramuscularly

Special Precautions and Warnings

  • TYPBAR protects against typhoid fever caused by salmonella Typhi. Protection is not conferred against Salmonella paratyphi and other non-typhoidal salmonellae.
  • Should be delayed in infection and febrile case.
  • Adrenaline injection must be kept readily available following immunization, should an anaphylactic or other allergic reaction occur due to any component of the vaccine.
  • Caution in case of subjects with thrombocytopenia or bleeding disorder since bleeding may occur following an intramuscular administration in these subjects. It may be expected that in patients with immunodeficiency, an adequate response may not be achieved.
  • Pregnancy and lactation: The effect of Typbar on fetal development or reproduction capacity has not been evaluated. Typbar should be given to pregnant and lactating mothers only if clearly needed.
  • Pediatric use: safety and effectiveness of Typbar in children two years of age and below has not been established. Polysaccharides vaccines, in general, have lower immunogenicity under this age.
