Received 4th dose of anti rabies vaccine and dog bite me again what is the protection period of immunity?
Over 10 years: The vaccine provides protection for at least 10 years - probably no more than 14 years however. The recommended dose after possible exposure is 4 doses which you have now had. You should be covered. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
