A member asked:

My wbc count is 3.6 from recent test whereas normal range is 3.8-10.8. will this affect my rabies antibodies built through previous vaccines? will my immune response to a new potential unknown rabies exposure like a bat bite be slow and inefficient?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, your borderline low WBC will not affect your response to rabies vaccination. Wish you good health!
