Summary
Rationale

The oral typhoid vaccine Ty21a has a relatively low efficacy and instructions are relatively complicated. The aim of this study is to assess the compliance with the vaccine in travellers.

Method

A telephone survey was carried out in a random sample of 100 travellers prescribed the vaccine. Subjects were asked predetermined questions including sociodemographic data and information related to the trip and the taking of the vaccine.

Results

Of the 67 subjects that could be interviewed, correct compliance was recorded in 53 (79.1%) of them.

Conclusion

This compliance is acceptable, however, the administration of the Vi typhoid intramuscular vaccine should be considered when the correct taking of the oral vaccine is not ensured.

Resumen
Fundamento

La vacuna antitifoidea oral Ty21a tiene una eficacia relativamente baja y las instrucciones son relativamente complicadas. El objetivo del estudio es evaluar el cumplimiento vacunal en viajeros.

Método

Se llevó a cabo una encuesta telefónica en una muestra aleatoria de 100 viajeros a los que se administró la vacuna. La encuesta constaba de preguntas predeterminadas, que incluían datos sociodemográficos e información relacionada con el viaje y con la toma de la vacuna.

Resultados

De los 67 sujetos que se pudo encuestar, 53 (79,1%) habían cumplido correctamente la pauta vacunal.

Conclusión

Un cumplimiento del 79,1% es aceptable; sin embargo, la administración de la vacuna antitifoidea Vi intramuscular tendría que considerarse cuando la toma correcta de la vacuna oral no está asegurada.
