Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks.

I've been bitten by my dog is it safe to breast feed my baby even if I haven't got an anti rabies vaccine yet?

I've been bitten by my dog is it safe to breast feed my baby even if I haven't got an anti rabies vaccine yet?

Yes it is safe: I assume you are asking about rabies. In order for you to transmit rabies to your child through breast feeding- you would have to be sick with the virus yourself. Hopefully your dog is fine, although I know in the Philippines rabies is a big problem. If the dog is OK after 14 days of observation, you don't need any rabies preventive treatment. Otherwise, u should get to San Lazaro. Hope this helps

Why anti rabies vaccine like rabipur have caused neurological adverse effects like (ADEM, GB syndrome), is it not safe to take (PCECV) vaccine rabipur?

Why anti rabies vaccine like rabipur have caused neurological adverse effects like (ADEM, GB syndrome), is it not safe to take (PCECV) vaccine rabipur?

Seems coincidental: Rabipur is a Purified Chick Embryo Cell Vaccine (PCECV), not known to CAUSE neurological side effects. A rare patient can get neurological problems after getting a vaccine... but that's coincidental unless the rate of neurological problems occurs more often in vaccine recipients than in non-recipients. For example, if a child dies in a car wreck after getting a vaccine, we don't blame the vaccine.

Is it safe to take rabies immune globulin while pregnant or breastfeeding?

Is it safe to take rabies immune globulin while pregnant or breastfeeding?

Yes, IgG is safe: Immune globulin (igg) is concentrated antibodies, and helps protect against a variety of infections. It is safe for pregnant women, breastfeeding moms, and infants. Of course, there could be a rare allergic reaction on a rare occassion. Because IgG is purified from other people's blood plasma, there is also a very, very rare chance that something contagious could be transmitted in the injection.

As per schedule received 4th dose of rabies vaccine then after 2 hours later dog bite me again? Restart the schedule and am I safe from rabies virus?

As per schedule received 4th dose of rabies vaccine then after 2 hours later dog bite me again? Restart the schedule and am I safe from rabies virus?

Likely safe: The protective benefit of the rabies vaccine is expected to last for at least 2 years from the time you complete the series. If your exposure is within that time frame you are likely protected. Be aware that there are several other potential germs that can cause an infection from a bite, and close monitoring is advised.

My rabbit licked me on my fingers and after that I rubbed my eyes with that fingers, 2 hours later I got rabies vaccine 1 dose am I on safe side??

Rabies risks: Dogs primarily are responsible for transmission of rabies to people. It would be extremely rare for a rabbit to transmit rabies. In addition, your rabbit is not sick so the risk is essentially zero. Not sure "why" someone gave u a rabies vaccine shot for that-- I don't think u need any more treatment. Try not to worry about this!

DR. SCOTT HAMSTRA, what do you mean why take the risk. Are you suggesting getting rabies vaccine for humans to build up immunity?

No: There are a few "high risk" jobs where Rabies Vaccine is recommended for people who are likely to get exposed to rabies. Outside of Africa and Asia, only get exposed to rabies in wild animals -- doesn't happen often - so don't use the vaccine unless get exposed. Your immune system is what fights off the rabies virus - the vaccine helps your immune system do this quicker and stronger.

Help! D; I received my last rabies vaccine today and I'm worried. Please tell me is PDEV; Vaxirab safe? Is it safeee?? Help! ; _ ;

Yes: Ruby, the rabies vaccine has been extensively tested and in use for decades. Other than being painful to receive, it is quite safe unless you are allergic to the vaccine itself. As long as you don't have any symptoms, you are most likely fine. If you develop a rash, trouble breathing, or swelling, see your doctor. Hope this helps!

How long my flu will take to go after rabies vaccine?

How long my flu will take to go after rabies vaccine?

???: Perhaps your question is, how long after rabies vaccine may I take my flu shot? The rabies vaccine is not a live virus. Some influenza vaccines do contain live virus. It is recommended that you wait 4 weeks between doses of live virus vaccine, but since rabies vaccine contains the inactivated virus, you may take your flu shot at any time. Good luck!
