Typhoid Vaccines: WHO Position Paper

This report, published in the Weekly Epidemiological Record, provides the World Health Organization’s (WHO's) recommendation on the use of typhoid vaccines in a global context. It summarizes essential background information on typhoid disease and its burden, and includes information on the safety and effectiveness of the globally available typhoid vaccines. In 2018, this recommendation was replaced to reflect the most recent developments in typhoid vaccines to preferentially recommend the prequalified typhoid conjugate vaccine.
