Do not be: concerned about transmitting anything related to the rabies vaccine you received. Rabies is a non-live vaccine and poses no risk to the recipients of blood. I suspect the reason you may have been told to wait a year after the vaccine is if you sustained a bite which prompted the vaccine. Blood donation is deferred in this situation, being VERY cautious. Kissing is OK! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Confusing wording: The vaccine series promotes immune protection in your body that protects you for at least 2 years from the point of completion.If you are exposed to a rabid animal in that period you don't need to worry about rabies. You do not need to avoid kissing or sex, as this has nothing to do with your ability to engage in either. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: You are safe in this manner. The vaccine contains Rabies virus in a weakened form which can still allow your body to make antibodies against Rabies. It has been altered in the lab and reproduced in lab cells for the vaccine in this weakened form, amplifying the elements that your immune system can combat. It is not strong enough to give the disease itself. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
