In brief: Variable:

The answer is complex: it depends where in asia you are going (china, india, southeast asia), what you will be doing there (tourist sites? Visiting family or friends?), and where you will eat (large hotel restaurants or small noodle shops or street vendors) most travelers to india get immunized.

In brief: Probably 25% or less

Depending on the actual location of travel and the type of vacation, a trip less than one month may not pose much risk of typhoid exposure.
