I've had it loads of times since I was a child. It's not nice, although it is a hell of a lot better than it used to be. However, the reason it's not nice is that typhoid is a terrible disease so please, please have it if you need it.
Sh and I had typhoid jabs some years ago, and the only side-effect we had werrre a very sore, achey and tender arm each, which eased over a few days. IIRC we may have felt vaguely fluey after a day or two, but not for more than a day or two. We weren't off work at all, and were certainly back to 100% within a few days.
Had typhoid & cholera in each arm both arms couldn't move by the afternoon & I felt horrendous. Apparently I was actually green. However when we were on the way home I heard one of the stewardesses telling a family who hadn't had the jab as there had been reported cases they may not be allowed off the plane as they didn't have certificates to say they would be ok.
Turned out ok but they were panicking.
