Book a Cholera Vaccination
By booking an appointment with a REMEDI HEALTH clinician we can ensure that we can advise appropriately and prescribe safely for optimum protection.
Keeping healthy when travelling goes beyond having the recommended vaccines before your trip. It’s about your broader health protection needs and may involve antimalarials and other acute treatments should you become unwell. We can also advise and provide these.

Your appointment will be with a highly trained clinician in one of our private consultation rooms at our clinic in Winchester. We will advise you to ensure that you only receive treatment that is appropriate so you are protected and safe.
We operate within a registered private pharmacy which means that we can discuss and provide any required treatments, tests or referrals as appropriate. You can also be assured that we work within a strict governance framework.

Cholera is a disease caused by certain toxin-producing forms of the bacteria called Vibrio cholera. Cholera is transmitted by eating and drinking contaminated water or food. It is common in many low-income countries and is largely linked to poverty, bad sanitation and poor access to clean drinking water.
The risk of cholera for most travellers is extremely low. Activities that may increase risk include drinking untreated water or eating poorly cooked food (particularly seafood) in areas where outbreaks are occurring. Travellers living in unsanitary conditions, including humanitarian workers in disaster/refugee areas, are also at risk.
Cholera can be mild or occur without symptoms in healthy individuals. Symptoms include sudden, profuse, watery diarrhoea with associated nausea and vomiting. If untreated, cholera can rapidly lead to serious dehydration and shock.
About the Cholera Vaccination
An oral drink, inactivated cholera vaccine called Dukoral® is available and protects against V. cholerae serogroup O1. This vaccine is not needed by most travellers; it is recommended for those whose activities or medical history put them at increased risk, including:
- aid workers
- those going to areas of cholera outbreaks who have limited access to safe water and medical care
- those for whom vaccination is considered potentially beneficial and are considered at higher risk.
