A 29-year-old male asked:
Is rabies vaccination on glute region is of no use?

Less not zero: The injection into the shoulder (deltoid) muscle or the thigh (quads) are the recommended sites because they expose the vaccine to better blood flow which allows more consistent antibody formation. Injection into the gluteus produces a weaker (but not zero) response.
