If you are travelling to an at-risk area, you can help protect yourself from travellers’ diarrhea with DUKORAL®.
DUKORAL® is an oral vaccine (taken by mouth) that helps prevent travellers’ diarrhea caused by enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC). This vaccine may be given to adults and children 2 years of age and older.
After taking the vaccine, your body will make substances called antibodies, which fight the ETEC bacteria and toxins that cause diarrhea. If a vaccinated person comes into contact with ETEC bacteria, the body is usually ready to destroy it.
Before you travel to an at-risk area, ask your healthcare professional if DUKORAL® is right for you. DUKORAL® is available at your pharmacy or travel clinic. You do not need a prescription for DUKORAL® for travellers’ diarrhea, unless you are a resident of Quebec.
