CDC Finalizes Cholera Vaccine Recommendation

The final recommendation was published in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report

According to a report, the CDC’s cholera vaccination recommendation is now final. The recommendation was published in the agency’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly.

Vaxchora, a live oral cholera vaccine, was approved by the FDA in 2016. It is the only FDA-approved cholera vaccine in the United States, and is approved for use in adults ages 18 to 64.

The CDC says most travelers from the United States do not visit areas with active cholera transmission, but it can quickly kill people if it is not treated. The agency also recommends drinking safe water, cooking food thoroughly, and washing hands properly.
