In brief: Canada

The Cholera Vaccine is only 50% effective but, if travelers are going to a high risk area and are anxious to get the vaccine-- here in washington state, patients can travel to a canada clinic to get vaccine.
The dukoral vaccine only covers some forms of cholera. For those over 6 yrs, receive 2 doses orally, 1 to 6 weeks apart . Children ages 1-5 yrs, are given 3 doses. Boosters every 2 years.
