I have been administered first rabipur vaccine on intragluteal region. Says in instructions should not be give there. Is this an issue? Can I continue?

I have been administered first rabipur vaccine on intragluteal region. Says in instructions should not be give there. Is this an issue? Can I continue?

OK but not ideal: The vaccine does not absorb as well from the gluteal muscles which is where the recommendation comes from. It's not harmful to you, but may not be as effective if all the doses are given there. Also, the is a big nerve in your bum that could be hurt when you give gluteal injections, so best to just stay away from them. You certainly should continue the series. ...Read more

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

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

How long after getting rabies vaccine after exposure will it completely prevent disease? My question is referring to after the very first shot.

Rabies prevention: For a 'real' exposure, immediate protection is usually given in the form of rabies immune globulin. I wonder if you were given that? The rabies vaccine series takes 14 days to administer the 4 shots (5 if the body is weak). After the first shot, you body will start its 'homework' but it's going to be at least 10 days after that before you're immune system is fully operational vs. Rabies. ...Read more
