Next week I am leaving on a 5 week trip starting in Italy and ending in Dubai.
I don't plan on having any meals outside the hotel (and even then will opt for the safest choices) and I will be bringing packaged supplies for breakfast and dinners, drinking only bottled water, teeth cleaning with bottled etc. also got plenty of 72% alcohol sanitiser packed.
There is currently a national shortage of typhoid vaccine and a one week wait for the oral - which means I won't have time to take the course.
Should I push out the trip an extra week to allow time for the oral vax or is the risk not terribly huge based on the places I'll visit and food plans?
Thank you in advance for any shared opinions xxEdited: 12:02 am, June 02, 2013
