How bad is it to get a rabies vaccine without getting the immune globulin shot?

Possibly fatal. Rabies is fatal. If you get it, you will die. There is little to know treatment. Once you have been exposed, you have a about 6 weeks before you get the disease. It takes time for the vaccine to work, maybe longer than 6 weeks. You need the instant protection of the Immune Globulin shot to give the vaccine time to work.
