The vaccine should not be administered to these persons regardless of benefits.

Severe Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility

Applies to: Infectious Diarrhea/Enterocolitis/Gastroenteritis

The oral typhoid vaccine should not be taken during an acute gastrointestinal illness. The vaccine should not be administered to individuals receiving sulfonamides and antibiotics since these agents may be active against the vaccine strain and prevent a sufficient degree of multiplication to occur in order to induce a protective immune response. Postpone taking the vaccine if persistent diarrhea or vomiting is occurring. Not all recipients will be fully protected against typhoid fever. Advise all persons that vaccinated individuals should continue to take personal precautions against exposure to typhoid organisms, i.e. travelers should take all necessary precautions to avoid contact or ingestion of potentially contaminated food or water.
