Rabies vaccine side effects? Got my shot yesterday now i feel nauseous is it normal? Bitten by my pet rabbit; he's still alive.

Rabies vaccine side effects? Got my shot yesterday now i feel nauseous is it normal? Bitten by my pet rabbit; he's still alive.

Rabbit bite: For a rabbit bite to cause rabies would be extremely unusual. Dogs cause 99% of human rabies and I have never seen a case report in the literature of rabies from a rabbit. Hopefully the bite wound is OK- that might be causing the nausea if u have a low grade infection there. Only a few percent of people will get nausea from a rabies vaccine. Hope doc will check you bite wound soon. ...Read more
