Doctor, I am confused. Could I catch sore throat because of hdcv rabies vaccine. I am suffering from sore throat since after my second shot.
No: The rabies vaccine will not give you a sore throat. If you are allergic to it, you could have swelling in the throat but that usually causes respiratory problems and / or itching. It is more likely that you got a viral infection of the throat around the same time as the vaccination - completely unrelated. ...Read more

My sore throat does not go away after 4 dose of rabies vaccination. What should I do? Whenever I take vaccine I get chills and fever.1 dose left.
I don't think sore throat related to rabies vaccine. It's normal to have flu-like symptoms with any vaccination such as fatigue, fever, headache, myalgia, dizziness, malaise, arthralgia. You may even get swollen lymph nodes in a neck area, but should not get just sore throat, please see you doctor to rule out pharyngitis such as strep infection

Took wicoryl, levocetrizine, amoxillin, azithromycin during rabies vaccination due to sore throat, fever and chills. Is this fine? Immune supressed?
Yes: Assuming your doctor recommended these antibiotics to treat an infection, this is fine. None of the medications mentioned will conflict with the others. Rabies vaccine is a killed vaccine so you may not mount as strong a response to the vaccine. If you were exposed to rabies prior to vaccine, you may need an additional dose on day 28 and should by now have had rabies immune globulin ...Read more

See a doc: Animal bites can cause serious infections, and cat scratch fever is a real infection associated with fevers and lymph node enlargement. If you had any symptoms after an animal bite I would check in with the doctor for a quick exam. Domesticated animals rarely pass rabies, so you are fairly safe from having to worry about that exposure ...Read more
