Details

Diphtheria is a bacterial disease spread mainly by exhaled water droplets and occasionally through infected skin lesions. It can be fatal if left untreated. Travellers are at risk when mixing closely with the local population in most developing countries. If they are likely to be at risk, travellers should ensure they have had a Diphtheria vaccine within the last 10 years.


Age of Use Doses Required Schedule Time Before Travel  Booster Required

*Vaccines work best if given time to become active. This vaccine can be given up to the day before travel and will provide some cover.
