At Rite Aid, our customers' wellness is our top priority. And part of this responsibility is helping them avoid diseases like typhoid fever. Typhoid fever is caused by the bacterium Salmonella Typhi. It is a life-threatening disease.
Typhoid fever is rare in industrialized nations like the U.S., Western Europe, Japan, Canada and Australia. About 5,700 cases of typhoid fever occur annually in the U.S. and up to 75% of these cases are contracted while traveling abroad. In the developing world, typhoid fever is still very common. Approximately 21.5 million people are affected each year. International travelers should take precautions before leaving their home country. U.S. residents traveling to Latin America, Asia and Africa are especially vulnerable.
