Cholera Risk: "Cholera vaccine is not generally recommended, though cholera is reported (see "Recent outbreaks" below), because most travelers are at low risk for infection. " vaccines, where available, are recommended only for high-risk individuals, such as relief workers, health professionals, and those traveling to remote areas where cholera epidemics are occurring and there is limited access to medical care
