The disease causes loose watery and sometime bloody diarrhoea.

The vaccine (Dukoral) is not an injection but a drink. Protection is gained for up to 2 years after taking two drinks  1-6 weeks apart. Ideally the second drink should be taken 1 week before travel.

 

Cholera  is found throughout the world particularly in countries where sanitation is poor, particularly parts of Africa, India and South East Asia.
