Unclear question: You may wish to restate your question. Make sure to complete the course of vaccination. Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

Serum Sickness?: The rabies vaccine cannot cause rabies, but does have side effects like serum sickness. Please discuss your symptoms with the doctor who prescribed the vaccine series. You need to balance the severity of your symptoms against the need to complete the series of rabies vaccines. This is especially true if the animal is still alive and can be observed for signs of rabies OR euthanized for testing.

A 21-year-old male asked:

I got bitten by a cat after 2 month of 3 pre-exposure rabies vaccine taken, I then proceeds to take 1 booster dose after that day, am I covered?

It partly depends: on whether you consider the bite to be high risk/there was a high suspicion that the cat may be infected. Typically a person who has been previously vaccinated should get 2 doses of rabies vaccine after a suspicious exposure/bite...one right away and another on the 3rd day. Unless the cat was highly suspicious for rabies, I think you are covered. Stay well:)

I wouldn't : You get the most effectiveness of the material the earlier it is given.
