I got my rabies vaceens all done but then I kissed my boyfriend I am really concerned about that he get the virus but appearently they said it is a low percentage but other then we cant give blood to another person for uone year is that mean are we still
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 more
A street cat scracht me 3 days ago then I get my first vaccine then I kissed with my girlfriend is it possible to pass rabies to her? Scracht on hand
No risk of spread: Good you are getting treatment after a possible rabies exposure. Can they find the cat that scratched u? That would be very helpful to determine the best course of treatment for you. Don't worry though-you are NO RISK to anyone at this time because you don't have an actual rabies infection. You can't infect someone if you don't have the disease. In your case, you're preventing rabies-which is good ...Read more
If someone kissed someone with possible exposure to rabies (bat bite) before the full course of the PEP was finished could they contract rabies?
Rabies transmission: Per the Centers for Disease Control: The most common mode of rabies virus transmission is through the bite and virus-containing saliva of an infected host.

I gad my rabies vaceens 2 weeks ago bit inread that it goes away from My body in 2 years. I am really scare that won't be kiss or sexually for years p?
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 more
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 more
A car scrachted me then I started vaccine with suspect of rabies I got my first vaccine then I kissed my girlfriend so is that a risk to pass her?
No: Many questions...surprised if you got rabies treatment for a cat scratch; almost always transmitted through a bite. If you are receiving prophylaxis/rabies vaccine to protect again future bites/exposures, also no concern with kissing. There is no transmission of disease from a human receiving rabies vaccine. I hope this helps. Stay well:) ...Read more
Last day I got bitten by a dog. After getting my first vaccine shot I kissed my girlfriend. Is is possible to pass rabies to my girlfriend?
Most rabies is acquired through exposure to saliva from an animal bite. In rare cases, rabies results from a non-bite exposure (eg, aerosolized virus in bat caves) or transplantation of tissue from a donor with unrecognized rabies.
No transmission of rabies has been documented from infected patients to healthcare personnel or household contacts or by fomites or environmental surfaces. ...Read more

Not to worry: The rabies vaccination you received contained killed virus, which stimulated your immune system to produce antibodies which protected you from developing the disease, if you were bitten by a rabid animal. Other vaccines for certain viral disorders may contain attenuated live virus which rarely may cause the disease itself. The vaccine protected you from developing the disease, Not to worry. ...Read more

Last rabies question... Once early symptoms begin, can someone get better before it gets worse, or does it usually just go downhill from there?
