Here are some of the most common questions we hear people ask about it. We hope you find the answers helpful

QuestionMore information regarding Rabies Vaccine

What is Rabies and how is it transmitted?

It is an acute viral infection typically transmitted by the bite or scratch of an infected animal. Most infections are caused by dog bites. However, many other animals are known to carry the virus. These include cats, monkeys, tigers, rabbits, mongoose and squirrels. Rabies attacks nerves and muscles throughout the body, and without medical attention the disease is nearly always fatal.

Who should receive the vaccine?

The following individuals should receive the pre-exposure rabies vaccine:

  • People living in—or traveling to—high-risk areas such as jungle habitatsfor a month or longer, where access to reliable, prompt medical care is unreliable.
  • People who are traveling for less than one month to a high-risk area—but who may be exposed to Rabies because of their activities, and who may have limited access to post-exposure medical care.
  • People who are working abroad and in close contact with animals.

What protection is available?

The Rabies vaccine. Although it is derived from the Rabies virus it cannot cause the virus. It is administered in three injections on day 0, day 7, and day 21 or 28. Individuals who are immunized but are then bitten by a supposed rabid animal should receive the Rabies vaccine on day 0 and day 3.

Is the Rabies vaccine required?

It is not required but is highly recommended under the above conditions

Have I received it before?

Unlikely, unless you are a veterinarian or had an animal bite in the past.

What are the side effects?

Redness, swelling and/or pain at the injection site may occur within 24-48 hours of administration. More serious reactions are rare.
