Although it's relatively uncommon, it's possible that both types of typhoid vaccines may cause certain side effects in some people. Some people may have an allergic reaction to typhoid vaccines, causing symptoms, such as hives, swelling in your face or throat and difficulty breathing. Get emergency medical help if you experience any of those symptoms. Both the inactive and the live forms of typhoid vaccine may cause fever or headaches. The inactive (injected) typhoid vaccine may also cause swelling or redness at the injection site. The live (oral) typhoid vaccine may cause stomach pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Other side effects may occur, so talk to your doctor if you develop any new and unusual symptoms after getting a typhoid vaccine.
