What Should You Do If You Are Exposed To Rabies? (Infographic)


The primary rabies vaccination course comprises three rabies vaccines given over 3-4 weeks, on days 0, 7 and 21-28.This provides cover for a number of years but a booster should be given if travelling to a high risk area in the future (usually 5 years).The rabies vaccines used are NON-LIVE and therefore do not usually lead to flu-like or febrile illness.A pre-exposure course of rabies vaccinations means that if you are unlucky enough to be bitten or scratched by a suspected rabid animal, you will not need human rabies immunoglobulin (the antidote, known as HRIG).Rabies vaccine (Intradermal) costs just £30 per dose at TravelDoc™.The full course consists of three doses over 3-4 weeks.A booster is required after 5 years.The vaccine is not live and therefore does not make you unwell. It is very well tolerated.The vaccine does not go into the stomach (it goes into the arm like all other travel vaccines).
