Under what circumstances anti rabies vaccine rabipur can cause rabies? If it is mishandled or not stored properly can it cause rabies?

Rabies vaccine: Rabies vaccine is considered safe and in no way could trigger rabies itself -even if it was stored improperly or whatever. The company that makes the vaccine has quality controls that check the lots-so there are no concerns of that. Rabies can be tricky though, as the incubation time (time from bite to disease) can be very long -even more than one year. Best to see an Infectious Diseases doc if Qs ...Read more

For example I don't have rabies, I haven't bitten by a cat or scratched and I just take anti rabies vaccine. Is it bad? Would that make me sick?

Common: The rabies vaccine is often used by those in the business of handling animals as a safety measure. They get the vaccine as part of their work, and repeat it every 2 years as long as they are in a high risk setting. Anyone can have individual allergic or intolerance reactions to components of a vaccine, but when given under proper conditions these can be identified & managed successfully. ...Read more

Taken full course of anti rabies vaccine last month again exposure and received 4 doses of anti rabies vaccine exposure again then am I safe rabies?

Taken full course of anti rabies vaccine last month again exposure and received 4 doses of anti rabies vaccine exposure again then am I safe rabies?

Depends: On whether you received rabies immune globulin or the vaccine or both, which I assume was the case. Immune globulin offers temporary protection after exposure. The vaccine induces your own antibody production. Once you have received the vaccine, you will no longer be given the immune globulin after exposure but will be given the vaccine after exposure. In other words, each exposure requires vaccine administration but only the first requires immune globulin. Http://www. Cdc. Gov/rabies/medical_care/ ...Read more

Why 2nd dose of anti rabies vaccine given 7 days later? Give full reasons?

Vaccines: Most vaccines require more than1 dose when you start them. The first dose primes the immune response and the second dose therefore gets an inhanced response. The length of time between the 2 doses varies some based on the vaccine. When u have your first flu vaccine you need 2 then each year the vaccines are similar enough that you just remind your immune system with one dose fine tuned to that yr ...Read more

Anti rabies vaccine causes hiv? HIV symptoms start how long and HIV testing done how long in days?
