  1. Hi there,

    Can any docs/medics out there tell me how long the following jabs are in date/valid for: typhoid, diptheria, yellow fever, hep a, meninghitus (a and c) and rabies.

    many thanks for your help

  2. The currant service policy on this can be found in SGPL 08/05. Your friendly medic should be able to find you a copy. But in answer to your question the following periods of protection apply.

    Typhoid - 3 years.
    Diptheria - 10 years. (usually given with tetnus)
    Yellow Fever - 10 years.
    Hepatitis A - 10 years (providing the full initial course of two jabs has been completed)
    Meningitis A+C - 3 years (as you have not identified the exact type of A+C given this is the lowest period)
    Rabies - 2 years (providing the full course of 3 doses has been completed)
  3. cheers guys, thats all I need to know

    Thanks for your help
