 Residents immunised against Typhoid by the Department of Health in the past year may have to get a second shot. The department yesterday announced that pharmaceutical company Sanofi Pasteur had recalled batches of the vaccine administered here between July 2011 and September 2012. Persons vaccinated during that time are not at risk for any ill effects, a Government spokeswoman said.
 “The recall action is being taken to assure that only the most effective vaccines are in circulation in countries, and so that individuals visiting areas at high risk of Typhoid contamination pay extra attention to food and water hygiene to avoid contact with the bacterium."
