Yes: Ruby, the rabies vaccine has been extensively tested and in use for decades. Other than being painful to receive, it is quite safe unless you are allergic to the vaccine itself. As long as you don't have any symptoms, you are most likely fine. If you develop a rash, trouble breathing, or swelling, see your doctor. Hope this helps!

No problem: I see no evidence either would interfere with the effectiveness of the vaccine. Whether alcohol or weed is a healthy pursuit is a separate issue.
