New to the market, Vaxchora is the only cholera vaccine approved by the FDA for adults 18-64 years old who are traveling to an area of active cholera transmission. All Kohll’s Travel Vaccination clinics have Vaxchora available.
Vaxchora has been reported to reduce the chance of severe diarrhea in people by 90% at 10 days after vaccination and by 80% at 3 months after vaccination.
