In brief: Vaxchora

“Vaxchora is a live, attenuated vaccine.
The V. choleraevaccine strain in Vaxchora produces an incomplete, nontoxic version of the cholera toxin. Vaxchora replicates in the gastrointestinal tract.” It induces an anticholera immune response.

In brief: Oral vaccines

Not available in the usa because of low rate of immune response (52%) which is still better than none, dukoral is who approved and used in over 60 countries.
Shanchol has more limited use in some asian nations.Both are inactivated "killed" vaccines. In the us, some going to high risk areas, first travel to canada to get a dose of the cholera vaccine. Protection lasts 3 months.
