Typhoid Fever Vaccine

It is estimated that malaria and typhoid kills more people in Nigeria than HIV/AIDS. The good thing is that there is a vaccine for typhoid that gives you protection against Typhoid fever for at least 5 years or more.

This vaccine costs only 5,000 naira but surprisingly Nigerian doctors and nurses will never advise you to take this life saving vaccination and I WANT TO KNOW WHY?

I believe the government should advise or even mandate every Nigerian citizen to get vaccinated against the following deadly diseases: Typhoid Fever, Yellow Fever, Hepatitis B and TB. I will talk about Hepatitis and TB in my next post.
