Cholera vaccine is a vaccine used against cholera.[1][2]

A cholera vaccine is currently used in Vietnam.[3]

Although the protection observed has been described as "moderate", herd immunity can multiply the effectiveness of vaccination.[4] Although the vaccine can be dangerous for children, administration of the vaccine to adults can confer protection to children indirectly.[5]
