Dukoral

DUKORAL® is a drinkable vaccine that helps prevent diarrhea caused by enterotoxigenic E. coli producing heat-labile enterotoxin and cholera.

Enterotoxigenic E. coli (ETEC) is the most common cause of diarrhea for travellers to many parts of the world. Enterotoxigenic E. coli (ETEC) diarrhea can spread very easily from person to person. Annually, ETEC is estimated to cause 200 million diarrheal episodes and approximately 380,000 deaths worldwide. If you eat food or drink water or ice that is contaminated with ETEC, you are at risk of getting ETEC diarrhea.

98% of travellers have been shown to make a food or water mistake within the first 3 days of their vacation:

  • Drinking beverages with ice cubes or crushed ice
  • Brushing teeth with tap water
  • Consuming salads and uncooked vegetables
  • Eating fruits which cannot be peeled
  • Sampling local cuisine from street vendors

Dukoral® proudly displays the CDHF Symbol of Distinction which indicates that the CDHF recognizes the efficacy of Dukoral® for protection against heat-labile producing enterotoxigenic E.coli diarrhea during travels.
